Sprint signs deal allowing subscribers to roam in Cuba
As a result, Sprint has inked a deal with Telecommunications Company of Cuba (ETECSA) to allow its customers to roam in Cuba. The nation's fourth largest carrier says that it will announce more details about roaming in Cuba at a future date. At that time, Sprint will probably reveal whether the roaming service in Cuba will be covered by its Global Roaming or Open World plans. The latter focuses on connectivity in Canada, Mexico, and other countries in the Latin America region.
In announcing that it has become the first mobile carrier to sign a deal with ETECSA, Sprint says that it expects 3 million people from around the world to visit Cuba this year. Within the next ten years, that number is expected to rise to 5 million travelers a year. Many of them will be Sprint customers visiting Cuba to work, study or visit family. Sprint says that the deal announced today will make things more "convenient" for these Sprint subscribers.
