T-Mobile announced that it has signed an interconnect and roaming agreement with Empresa De Telecomunicaciones De Cuba(ETECSA), the Cuban telecommunications company. The new deal enables T-Mobile to do its part to open communications between the U.S. and the island nation, delivering more affordable voice calling for customers who want to keep in touch with friends and family in Cuba as well as voice, text and data roaming for customers traveling to Cuba starting this summer.

With the new agreement, T-Mobile cuustomers can call landlines and wireless phones in Cuba from the U.S. for just $0.60 per minute – 65 percent less than today. 

T-Mobile claims that it has more than a third (36.6%) of Cuban-born wireless customers, more than AT&T and triple the number of Verizon customers. In addition, customers in Cuban-American hubs like Miami are choosing T-Mobile and MetroPCS nearly twice as often as AT&T or Verizon, added the operator.

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!
