Good news for Pokémon trainers who subscribe to T-Mobile: The wireless company is providing customers with free, unlimited data to play the viral smartphone app.

Starting next Tuesday, T-Mobile says it will support their customers’ addiction to the augmented reality game by giving them free data on the Pokémon Go app for the next year. In order to activate the free data, customers need to download the T-Mobile Tuesdays app and claim the reward on a T-Mobile Tuesday between July 19 and August 9th

Free data isn’t the only way that the company is catering the users of the viral app. The company says it will also provide customers with free Lyft rides up to $15 to travel to a new PokéStop or gym to restock on supplies or train their virtual character. For Pokémon trainers with a sweet tooth, the wireless provider will also pay for a free Wendy’s Frosty.

Additionally, T-Mobile is offering 50% off select accessories like portable power packs and chargers at its stores so customers can charge their phones while on the hunt for Pokémon. The company will give 250 people $100 in PokéCoins, while five people will win a Pokémon Go hunting trip anywhere in the U.S. for themselves and a guest.
