T-Mobile Announces 4G Connect, Pushing Simpler Value and Programs

Today, at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), T-Mobile USA, Inc., announced 4G Connect, an innovative program that breaks away from the wireless industry and provides customers with value and choice on more devices than ever before. 4G Connect is a breakthrough program designed to make 4G connectivity a standard, integrated and free feature on select notebooks, tablets and Ultrabooks. Through 4G Connect, consumers who purchase these devices will be able to easily access the Internet out-of-the box, through a high-speed connection via T-Mobile's fast and dependable nationwide 4G network - all with no extra equipment, annual contracts or commitments.

"At T-Mobile, we continue to bring game-changing programs to market and believe that 4G connectivity should be a standard, simple solution on any mobile computing device, including notebooks. Our goal is to make sure customers have a 'walk out working' experience and not be constrained to Wi-Fi to have a data connection," said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile USA. "The revolutionary 4G Connect program is an innovative, industry-first experience that makes it easier than ever for customers to get that data access solution right out-of-the-box at no extra cost, and in retail environments where they already shop for these devices: national retail stores and online."

Wireless data usage is on the rise, and more people are turning to 4G-connected devices when Wi-Fi is not available. Often, consumers have had to invest in additional equipment and service plans, on top of device costs, to access data, which can be cumbersome and costly. With 4G Connect, T-Mobile is bringing consumers an easy and valuable connected experience and business model: a free 4G solution that's easier than Wi-Fi.

The 4G Connect program is also a great way to introduce new customers to T-Mobile's nationwide 4G network, which is available in 229 markets, reaching well over 220 million people. In addition, with the always-on connectivity features of Windows 8, only T-Mobile is providing customers with a free nationwide 4G option for a fantastic Windows experience.

The first devices supporting 4G Connect include select Windows 8 notebooks and Ultrabooks from Dell and HP, including the HP Pavilion dm1 and Dell Inspiron 14z Ultrabook. The HP Pavilion dm1is currently available at HP.com and Target. The Dell Inspiron 14z is available at Dell.com. Qualcomm Technologies Inc. is a leading technology provider helping deliver the 4G Connect service and experience. Look for more Qualcomm Gobi-enabled devices as well as Windows RT devices powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon being added to the 4G Connect program in 2013.
