Sprint Expands Number of Countries in Roaming Program
Sprint today added seven countries to its International Value Roaming program. The program lets Sprint customers roam on 2G networks in select countries for free and offers reduced-rate voice minute calling for 20 cents per minute. The new countries are Colombia, Denmark, Honduras, Ireland, Italy, Paraguay, and Sweden. These join more than a dozen others, including Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Germany, Guatemala, Japan, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Russia, South Korea, Spain, and the U.K. The 2G roaming may be free, but customers who want 3G speeds or better when abroad will need to purchase a 1-, 7-, or 14-day Speed Pass.
