The third largest wireless carrier in the US, T-Mobile announced that it will offer a year of free, unlimited data for customers playing Pokemon GO mobile game as part of its weekly "T-Mobile Tuesday" promotional program. T-Mobile is quick to leverage the phenomena of the Augmented Reality (AR) mobile game that was launched on July 6th.

It has since raced past the likes of Facebook and Twitter on the app charts, already attracting a record-setting 21 million daily users in the U.S. alone. The groundbreaking AR game has surged to the No.1 free game and No.1 grossing game in both the Apple App Store and Google Play Store in record-breaking time, qualifying Pokémon Go as a certifiable global phenomenon.

New and existing T-Mobile customers can get free and unlimited high-speed data for all their Pokémon Go gaming in the U.S. – all the way through end of August 2017. They just need to download the T-Mobile Tuesdays app and claim the free gift. The limited-time offer will be available for redemption beginning next Tuesday, July 19th and will be available for redemption every T-Mobile Tuesday through Tuesday, August 9th.  Everyone who is eligible for T-Mobile Tuesdays is eligible for the Pokémon deal. 

To qualify for the offer, customers need to download the T-Mobile Tuesdays app, through which the year of free data will be offered on Tuesdays between July 19 and August 9.

As part of its T-Mobile Tuesday promotion, the carrier is also partnering with Lyft to provide free rides up to $15 to PokéStops through the app.

John Legere, President and CEO of T-Mobile
With the carriers’ shared data schemes, players could easily burn up the family’s data bucket – and then, hello, overages! At T-Mobile, we’re unleashing Pokémon Go so our customers can play free for a year. It’s gonna be a fantastic T-Mobile Tuesday!
