By popular demand, phone carrier T-Mobile has added Apple Music to its "Music Freedom," giving listeners free streaming without having to use up their high-speed data.

Since launching in June 2014, the "Music Freedom" feature has grown from only seven to 33 streaming services, including Spotify, Pandora, Rdio, Rhapsody and Google Music.

T-Mobile CEO John Legere wrote in a blog post that "Apple Music has become the single most requested new addition to Music Freedom," adding that the recently launched service "counts for a full 80 percent of the requests coming in via Twitter. I heard every one of them, so it’s happening right now!"
