Verizon will offer roaming in Cuba, but you probably can't afford to use it

Verizon has announced that it will offer international roaming in Cuba. The first of the major US carriers to do so, Verizon is offering both voice and data roaming in its new package. It also comes as a part of the carrier's Pay-As-You-Go International Travel option.

The plan is fairly expensive. Voice calls in Cuba cost $2.99 per minute, while data costs $2.05 per megabyte. Standard international message rates apply. To take advantage of roaming in Cuba, opt-in to the Pay-As-You-Go International plan before you travel. You will also need a world device, a phone capable of connecting to Cuba's cellular networks, in order to take advantage of this plan.

Verizon plans to start offering roaming in Cuba beginning next week.
