Sprint subscribers will soon be able to roam in Cuba

Sprint has announced that it has signed a direct roaming deal with the Telecommunications Company of Cuba (ETECSA). This will allow Sprint subscribers to easily roam inside Cuba, though the company doesn't mention whether roaming in Cuba will be covered under its Global Roaming or Open World plans.

From Sprint:

"As the commercial relationship between the U.S. and Cuba continues to progress, it is expected that the number of travelers to Cuba will increase exponentially," said Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure. "We want to make sure any Sprint customer traveling to Cuba can use their phone the same way as they do in the United States."

Sprint hasn't announced any specific plans for roaming in Cuba just yet. The carrier says they will announce details and availability at a later date.

  • I really feel bad for you guys in that area. "a fanboy, DAT that sh...I don't like"
  • You are using the ntelos network in Roanoke. Sprint has no native cell sites there. Shentel will be buying out ntelos very soon so improvements will come. If you don't want to wait, I'm sure other carriers will take your money too. Posted via the Android Central App
  • And shentel is awesome. They did the roll out where I live. Done well and done fast __________________________________________________________________________________-_________________________-____________________
  • Marcello wants you to be able to use your phone in Cuba like you can in the US...lmao Now that's funny. Here in the USA its complete junk, so they want you to have a bad experience there too? Bad marketing. Sprint should fire this CEO, I was hoping for Sprint to get better....but this CEO seems to be taking it backwards.... Just my 2 pennies Posted via the Android Central App

  • That is a totally different t-mobile. Not really the same company. The German parent has been trying to unload that dog in the US for almost a decade now but the government gets in the way. The two are not comparable __________________________________________________________________________________-_________________________-____________________

  • Aren't American citizens not permitted to travel to Cuba since the 1960s lol? "Tourist travel to Cuba is prohibited under U.S. law for U.S. citizens, permanent residents, and others subject to U.S. jurisdiction" http://travel.state.gov/content/passports/en/country/cuba.html Posted via...The One Edit. I guess you can travel there, you just to have a really good reason to go "Americans are not allowed to simply vacation in Cuba. The only way to legally visit is to fall under one of 12 tourist licenses, including family visits, religious activities, professional purposes, and educational reasons, to name a few. That means that you can't go to Cuba to just lay on the beach."
