Sprint has you covered if you roam to Cuba

Globetrotters aren’t just tall, athletic people with fancy finesse in twirling basketballs. They’re people who travel across the earth for whatever reason, be it for pleasure or for work. T-Mobile has made multiple moves to support these kinds of people while Sprint has trailed behind the Un-carrier with its own free global roaming amenity. It’s not much of an amenity, though, as it limits speeds in 60 countries down to 2G speeds or 64kbps.

Well, make that 61. From Pinar del Rio to Baracoa, Cuba is now all yours to sprint across if you’re on Sprint.

CEO Marcelo Claure announced the roaming agreement with Cuban carrier ETECSA during a signing ceremony at the US Chamber of Commerce. Claure traveled as part of the US-Cuba Business Council delegation.

Sprint is the first and only carrier with direct roaming and direct long-distance interconnection agreements with a Cuban carrier.
