U.S. residents can now travel freely to and from Cuba and, recognizing that, Sprint on Thursday announced that its prepaid Boost Mobile customers in Miami can now take advantage of placing calls to Cuba.
The primary prepaid plan offered by Boost Mobile will cost customers $50 per month and includes affordable per-minute calls and unlimited text messages, Reuters explained.
Reuters said that just 2 million Cubans currently own cellphones, which means another 9 million people remain unconnected. That’s a big market, and one we suspect will continue to be on the radar of major telecoms and OEMs in the future.
Update: Sprint explained in an email to TechnoBuffalo that the plans are only available to customers in Miami and that service is only available to Cuba, not in Cuba.
