T-Mobile today announced that it has struck a roaming deal with Empresa De Telecomunicaciones De Cuba, S.A., which enables T-Mo to offer cheaper calling to the country as well as roaming while there. Specifically, Simple Choice customers can make calls to both landlines and wireless phones in Cuba from the US for $0.60 per minute with the $15 per month Stateside International Talk add-on. That’s 65 percent less than it costs today.
T-Mobile’s deal will also enable you to use your voice, text, and data if you take a trip to Cuba, starting this summer.
Here’s John Legere’s statement on today’s news:
“The historic opening of Cuba is a natural opportunity for us to take action, and we are. That’s the Un-carrier way! We have more customers of Cuban descent than any other wireless provider – so connecting them with family and friends in Cuba is a message we heard loud and clear!”
It’s good to see T-Mobile responding to the opening of Cuba by improving its services for customers, making it cheaper to contact people in Cuba and easier to stay connected if you decide to take advantage of Cuba’s opening.
