T-Mobile announced on Monday it had signed an interconnect and roaming agreement with Cuban telecommunications company Empresa De Telecomunicaciones De Cuba, S.A.
The new deal will deliver more affordable voice calling for Magenta Network customers who need to keep in touch with friends and family on Cuba. The deal will also offer more affordable voice, text, and data roaming costs for customers traveling to Cuba, beginning this summer.
“The historic opening of Cuba is a natural opportunity for us to take action, and we are. That’s the Un-carrier way!” said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. “We have more customers of Cuban descent than any other wireless provider – so connecting them with family and friends in Cuba is a message we heard loud and clear!”
The carrier says over a third of all Cuban-born wireless customers are T-Mobile subscribers, more than AT&T, and triple the number Verizon serves. The carrier says Cuba has been the #1 most requested addition to their International Roaming services on social media.
Simple Choice customers will be able to:
- Call landlines and wireless phones in Cuba from the U.S. for just $0.60 per minute – 65 percent less than today – with the popular monthly “Stateside International Talk” feature ($15 per month) and
- Use voice, text, and data while traveling in Cuba, starting this summer.
