T-Mobile's 3G coverage map might leave quite a bit to be desired, but hey, it's not all bad news for T-Mobile subscribers. For the next six months, Aircell is offering free Gogo Inflight Internet service to owners of T-Mobile USA's new HTC HD2 smartphone.
"Aircell is constantly striving to partner with companies that can enrich the inflight experience," said Aircell President and CEO Michael Smith. "With the newest smartphone from T-Mobile, we can provide our customers with a simple, yet powerful way to stay connected, even at 35,000 feet."
To access the service, HTC HD2 users need only select the Gogo Inflight Internet bookmark under the "Favorites" menu and register to kick off the free service period. The offer is valid for up to six months or until June 30, 2011, whichever comes first.
According to Aircell, 30 percent of visitors access the Gogo Inflight Portal from Wi-Fi enabled smartphones. Gogo is now available on more than 760 commercial aircraft and more than 2,600 daily flights in the U.S., with pricing starting at $4.95 per session.
