Terrified by what your cellular bill might look like if you travel internationally? It doesn’t have to be that way, as David Pogue writes at the New York Times, thanks to a new policy by T-Mobile.

Alas, T-Mobile’s coverage isn’t sufficient for many people, but if the coverage is good where you live, it would be refreshing to work with a carrier that isn’t hell-bent on gouging customers. follow link
