T-Mobile will let its customers listen to Apple Music without racking up any data charges.

The telco added Apple to its “unlimited music streaming” plan that lets users listen to 33 streaming music services including Pandora, iHeartRadio and Spotify, without cutting into their high-speed data allocation.

Not everyone agrees that concerns about data usage curb listening habits. But T-Mobile Chief Executive John Legere says his customers now stream more than 131 million songs a day, an increase of 275 percent since Music Freedom’s introduction a year ago.
