Reads Microsoft's new "Cellular Data" app for Windows 10:
Are you looking for a reliable, convenient way to stay connected everywhere you go, even when WiFi isn't available? The Cellular data app allows you to connect to a trusted nationwide mobile data network using only your Microsoft account.
Connect with – and pay for – a mobile data plan on your Windows 10 device using only your Microsoft account information.
That means no fixed contract and no long term commitments to a mobile network operator. Now you can buy and use mobile data at your own convenience. This is the easiest way to get online using a trusted nationwide network. Purchase a plan via Windows Store anywhere network coverage is available. The Cellular data app can get you connected at any time with a secure, high-speed mobile connection. This app is designed to work solely with specific Windows 10 devices and requires a Microsoft SIM card. Service is available in some markets and offers are for domestic plans only – international roaming offers will be available soon.
While Microsoft has not officially announced it yet, the app is available for download. Such a network would certainly be interesting, as it would likely have to piggyback on Sprint and T-Mobile's networks, just like Google's similar service does.
