T-Mobile Thinks A Free Hour Of Inflight WiFi Is The Price of Your Love

What does it take to get your heart rate up? Candy? Flowers? Or perhaps free WiFi? That’s the route to romance T-Mobile is taking, offering everyone — including non-customers — an hour of complimentary Gogo WiFi on domestic flights this weekend.

If you’re traveling on a Gogo-equipped plane flying somewhere in the U.S. between June 24-26, T-Mobile says the free WiFi offer is open to everyone with a smartphone, “including Verizon and AT&T customers who never get thanked by their carrier.”

After this weekend, the offer for an hour of free Gogo will still stand for all T-Mobile customers on a branded plan.

“We want to show everybody what it feels like to #GetThanked and travel like a T-Mobile customer!” said CEO John Legere in the company’s press release.

Here’s how it works, regardless of your phone carrier: Turn WiFi on, open a Web browser, and then click on the T-Mobile banner that pops up on a Gogo start screen page. The offer ends June 26 at 11 p.m. ET.

T-Mobile customers will also get free, unlimited data and texting throughout Europe all summer long as well, the company announced — except for Andorra… again.

“Except Andorra. Apologies to the proud people of Andorra!” T-Mobile adds in the fine print for the offer.

Cross your fingers that WiFi actually works — T-Mobile hasn’t been having the easiest time handling promotions lately: its ongoing “T-Mobile Tuesdays” program was beset with server issues in its first week. In the second, customers had issues getting their promised free pizza, leading T-Mobile to swap out pizza for Lyft rides. This week, it was back to more server errors for a lot of angry T-Mobile subscribers.
