Spotify launches unlimited music streaming with Deutsche Telekom

Online music provider Spotify has signed an agreement with telecoms giant Deutsche Telekom to provide unlimited music streaming to its mobile phone users in Germany, via its Spotify premium package and on selected tariffs.

DT’s customers will have access to more than 18 million tracks and Spotify usage will not count towards the user’s data allowance. The Special Complete Mobile Music Tariff will cost €29.95 (£23.95) per month (and a tenner extra with a new Smartphone) with unlimited everything. Interestingly users will be able to add Spotify Premium for €9.95 (£7.95) per month to their existing packages.

It will be interesting to see whether Spotify will see it fit to bring that service to the UK via T-Mobile and Everything Everywhere. It’s worth noting that both Virgin Media and Three, two of the smaller mobile phone operators in the UK offer Spotify Premium to their users for a fee (and in some cases, as a free trial service).

Spotify, which is widely credited to be the start-up that made legal music streaming services mainstream, costs £9.99 per month in the UK.

But you can get a cut down version of the service for as little as £4.99 per month.
