If you’ve been looking at new options for a wireless phone plan, T-Mobile is making it easier to give their network a try. T-Mobile is amping up one of its Un-carrier moves, Test Drive, allowing customers to try out T-Mobile’s expanded network FREE before switching from their current company.
With Test Drive, carrier customers will get a free hotspot that connects to the network, including the Un-carrier’s newest, most powerful signal — 600 MHz — and will be able to try the network for up to 30 days, all while keeping their own phone, phone number and apps.
“Of course, the carriers can’t even get something as simple as ‘try before you buy’ right. They want you to trade in your phone, transfer your life to a new one and burn an entire day switching … just to hope their network works for you. It’s arrogant, it’s broken and it’s time for backwards-buying to end,” said John Legere, CEO of T-Mobile. “Our network is open for anyone to try because we have nothing to hide — can your carrier say that? At T-Mobile, the strength of our network speaks for itself … we’re so confident in it, we’re giving people a free 30-day test drive.”
T-Mobile now covers 326 million people with LTE — that’s 99% of Americans. And, while data traffic on the network has more than tripled since 2016, LTE download speeds are 60% faster today.

If Test Drive sounds familiar, that’s because it is. Back in 2014, Un-carrier 5.0 pioneered a new way to buy wireless, letting people try T-Mobile’s network for free. But that meant carrying around a second phone with a second phone number, and people were limited to a seven-day trial. With today’s amped Test Drive, keep your phone, your number and your apps and try T-Mobile’s new LTE network for a full 30 days.
