America’s Un-carrier lights up data, calling and texting for customers travelling to Cuba
Bellevue, Washington—October 21, 2016—T-Mobile [NASDAQ: TMUS] today announced it’s lighting up Cuba with calling, texting and data roaming for customers travelling to the island nation. Thanks to an agreement inked earlier this year, T-Mobile customers can now talk for $2.00 a minute, send text and multimedia messages for $0.50 per message and receive them for free, and use data for $2.00 per MB while roaming in Cuba. And, as always with the Un-carrier, calling back to the US is completely free with Wi-Fi calling.
"The opening of Cuba has been historic-and we're excited to do our part to help people connect," said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. "Since we have more customers of Cuban descent than any other wireless company, we're incredibly happy to light up Cuba today for all of our T-Mobile customers. Dale, vámonos a Cuba!"
It's no surprise Cuba has continually been one of the top requested additions to T-Mobile's international roaming on social media. In the US, almost half (43.7%) of Cuban-born wireless customers are with the Un-carrier and wireless customers in Cuban-American hubs like Miami are consistently choosing T-Mobile over AT&T or Verizon.
T-Mobile moved to respond to those customer requests—signing a deal last spring with Empresa De Telecomunicaciones De Cuba, S.A. (ETECSA), the Cuban telecommunications company.
Back in May, T-Mobile enabled calls from the U.S. to Cuba for $0.60 per minute with its popular monthly "Stateside International Talk" feature ($15 per month). And, now, Un-carrier customers can stay connected while travelling in Cuba.
Today’s news is just one more reason the Un-carrier is the best wireless provider for people with passports. Now, with the addition of Cuba, T-Mobile customers can roam even more of the planet—most of it at no extra charge. T-Mobile customers with qualifying plans can use their phones in Mexico and Canada just like at home, and they get free data and texting and low flat-rate calling in 140+ countries and destinations globally.
