Is there anyone traveling to European or Asian counties with a wi-fi enabled phone on the simple choice group plan? How was the experience? Specifically --
A) Is there anyone who was at London or Brussels or India?
B) Were you seeing 4g LTE?
C) Were you taxed for data usage in the next bill?
D) Did you try any VoIP app / service to call out? E.g. Skype?
I'm planning to upgrade to an iPhone six, so some of these considerations are key.
There is a "High speed" pass option revealed here -

If you read through some of the docs and discussions on the International Services Forum you may find the answers to most of your questions.
I always recommend a back-up plan and a bit of paranoia to people considering international roaming.
I am in Colombia and am roaming on 3G but the data speeds are averaging around 128 kb. Somehow they are throttling the speed on the 2 carriers here which partner with T Mobile. While we do have 4G LTE I do not see any 4G connections using the T Mobile SIMM.
Slow data speeds should not come as a surprise. If you read the "About International Roaming" doc, it says, "Standard speeds approx. 128 Kbps. No tethering. Not for extended international use; you must reside in the U.S. and primary usage must occur on our U.S. network. Device must register on our U.S. network before international use. Service may be terminated or restricted for excessive roaming or misuse."
You can buy a temporary high-speed data pass.
