T-Mobile Music Freedom teaser 001

T-Mobile has added Apple Music to the list of supported streaming services for Music Freedom, an initiative which allows subscribers to stream their favorite songs through services like Spotify, Pandora, Rdio and more, over T-Mobile’s cellular network and without burning their 4G LTE data.

Hailed as T-Mobile’s “last Un-Carrier Amped move of the summer,” Simple Choice customers can now enjoy Apple’s streaming music service without worrying about Apple Music cellular data usage counting against their monthly 4G LTE allowance.

“Apple Music has become the single most requested new addition to Music Freedom and counts for a full 80 percent of the requests coming in via Twitter,” said T-Mobile CEO John Legere.

“We’re stoked to unleash Apple Music for T-Mobile Simple Choice customers.”

The carrier claims its customers stream over 131 million songs per day via Music Freedom, which made its debute a year ago. By comparison, “If AT&T customers streamed that much music, they could be paying upwards of $2.3 billion a year—and that’s not even factoring in overage penalties,” said T-Mobile.

In addition to Apple Music, Music Freedom supports a bunch of other streaming services like Spotify, Pandora, Rdio, Google Play Music, iHeartRadio, SoundCloud and SiriusXM.

    I’m so glad T-Mobile lets me stream Apple Music without eating at the data plan that I can’t use because I have no service everywhere I go. Thanks T-Mobile. 🙂

      I agree. I eat up my 5GB data every month and Spotify/Google Music are the only apps that play almost immediate because of this.
