  T-Mobile Cranks Up the Volume on Music Freedom

   without ever hitting your LTE data including Google Play Music, reports
         massive surge in music streaming on its Data Strong network

BELLEVUE, Wash. -- August 27, 2014

T-Mobile today announced the first major expansion to its Music Freedom™
program− doubling the number of music streaming services you’ll be able to use
with its landmark music streaming offer. Starting today, six new music
streaming services – AccuRadio, Black Planet, Grooveshark, Radio Paradise,
Rdio and Songza – are all available as part of T-Mobile’s Music Freedom, so
Simple Choice customers can stream all the music they want from these services
– all on T-Mobile’s Data Strong™ network and all without ever hitting their
LTE data bucket.

In addition, T-Mobile announced the winner of its social voting poll, designed
in true Un-carrier™ fashion to let customers decide which services they wanted
to add next. After nearly three-quarters of a million people voted, Google
Play Music topped the charts as the most requested service. T-Mobile is on
track to add Google Play Music to the Music Freedom program later this year.

“When the big ‘carriers’ look at music, they see an opportunity to use
someone’s passion to make a buck. When the Un-carrier looks at music, we see
an opportunity to set customers free from the tolls and limitations those
carriers impose,” said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. “Our goal
is nothing less than to set all your music free, and we’re well on our way.”

Just two months ago, in June, T-Mobile shook up both the mobile and music
industries with Un-carrier 6.0—a move that took a wrecking ball to the
restrictions some traditional carriers place on music streaming with their
data limits and overage fees.

And if early results are any indicator, it’s clear T-Mobile customers are
embracing their newfound music freedom with gusto. In fact, to date customers
have streamed nearly seven thousand terabytesof music since the launch and
are streaming 5 million more songs per day than before the launch of Music

“T-Mobile’s Music Freedom and services like Grooveshark are about
bringingmusic accessibility to the consumer,” said Sam Tarantino, Co-founder
and CEO of Grooveshark, “Together with Music Freedom, Grooveshark is creating
a new kind of music discovery on T-Mobile devices. We believe the combined
global audiences of millions represents a new and engaged audience for
Grooveshark on T-Mobile.”

The new services join iHeartRadio, iTunesRadio, Pandora, Rhapsody, Samsung
Milk, Slacker and Spotify already included in Music Freedom. T-Mobile has a
vision to add every possible music streaming service to Music Freedom, and any
music streaming provider can be part of Music Freedom by applying through
T-Mobile’s open submission process. To learn more about Music Freedom, please
