Sprint Adds Calls to Cuba to Mobile Phone Plan Options
Sprint customers can now make calls to Cuba on their mobile phones under an optional $10 Sprint Cuba 20 Plus calling plan.Calls to Cuba can now be made by Sprint customers using their mobile devices under a new add-on Sprint Cuba 20 Plus calling plan that is available immediately. The Sprint Cuba 20 Plus plans offer 20 minutes of international calling to Cuba per month for $10 (50 cents per minute), while additional minutes can be purchased for 70 cents per minute. The plans were announced by Sprint on June 15. As part of the Sprint Cuba 20 Plus calling plan, there are no additional international charges for calling or texting to Mexico and Canada, and there is discounted calling to 180 additional countries. The plan does not include audio, picture or video messages and excludes international roaming and some other call types, according to the company. All calls use Anytime Minutes from a Sprint customer's domestic calling plan, and applicable rates and texts will be counted against a customer's text allotment, if necessary. "Affordable international calling is an important feature for our customers," Tom Roberts, senior vice president of marketing for Sprint, said in a statement. "Sprint is the first national carrier to offer an affordable calling option to Cuba. We are continuing to expand our international offers for customers traveling abroad or while calling or texting from the U.S."
Customers can add the Cuba calling plan to their accounts online or by calling or visiting a Sprint location.
