T-Mobile Extends Roaming Service to Cuba

WASHINGTON – T-Mobile announced on Monday an agreement with Cuban state telecom company Etecsa to offer its customers direct telephone service from the U.S. to Cuba and roaming capability during visits to the island.

The move comes amid the normalization of ties between the U.S. and Cuba after more than five decades of official estrangement.

“The historic opening of Cuba is a natural opportunity for us to take action, and we are,” T-Mobile President and CEO John Legere said in a statement. “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.”

Under the agreement, T-Mobile subscribers in the U.S. will be able to make direct calls to mobile phones and landlines in Cuba at much lower rates.

Subscribers traveling in Cuba will be able to access voice, text and data.

In the wake of the December 2014 announcement of a rapprochement between Washington and Havana, the U.S. government authorized U.S.-based telecommunication companies to offer service in Cuba.

Verizon took the lead in September 2015, followed by Sprint and now, T-Mobile.
