Sprint’s Industry Leading International Service Just Got Even Better For Connecting While Traveling Abroad

New international service automatically provides customers free basic
data roaming, free texting and voice calling at $0.20/minute in 165
international destinations – more than any other carrier

OVERLAND PARK, Kan.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Sprint’s (NYSE: S) industry leading global roaming service just got even
better. Customers with the this service automatically receive an
incredible international experience when traveling abroad that includes
free basic data coverage, free texting and voice calling at
$0.20/minutes in 165 international destinations1.

“We heard loud and clear from our customers that international service
plans are confusing and expensive,” said Roger Solé, Sprint chief
marketing officer. “We listened and improved our global roaming service
to work for customers on their terms. Now Sprint customers don’t have to
worry about signing up for a plan before they travel or coming home to
unexpected charges. Sprint customers automatically have access to great
international services when traveling abroad.”

With Sprint, international services simply work for customers. There is
no plan to accept and no up-front or monthly charges to enable
international service on their smartphone. Customers get great service
around the world, just like they do at home on the Sprint network.

There are a lot of things to plan for when traveling internationally,
but wireless connectivity shouldn’t be one of them. With Sprint,
services and rates are clearly presented when customers turn on their
smartphones in a foreign country. And customers have free access to a
fantastic data management portal which provides real-time data usage
detail. The user experience is perfectly transparent and there is no
chance of data overages, ensuring Sprint customers don’t have to worry
about bill shock when they return from their trip.

  • In 165 well-traveled destinations – more than any other carrier –
    Sprint customers get:

    • Free basic data2
    • Free text messaging
    • $0.20/minute voice calling
  • If customers want a fast experience, they can purchase affordable
    high-speed data on-the-fly directly from their smartphone with just a
    few simple clicks. No advanced planning required. No need to call
    support. Sprint’s high-speed data services now include LTE in
    destinations where 90 percent of international data is used by our

    • Canada & Mexico: LTE high-speed data only $2/day | $10/week
    • Most other destinations: high-speed data only $5/day | $25/week
  • Sprint customers with an Unlimited Freedom plan receive free LTE
    high-speed data roaming, voice calling and text messaging while
    traveling in Canada and Mexico, as well as free International
    long-distance from the U.S. to these countries.

“Customers shouldn’t have to settle for tradeoffs when roaming
overseas,” said Solé. “Neither AT&T nor Verizon offer customers a free
data roaming option abroad, and T-Mobile doesn’t offer 4G speeds outside
Canada and Mexico. Sprint has more low-cost coverage than all three
competitors, and Sprint customers don’t have to make tradeoffs. In 165
destinations, they enjoy the option to choose between free basic data
and the best rates for high-speed data, including LTE in places where 90
percent of international data is used by Sprint customers.”

Sprint’s international roaming enhancement is another element to the new
customer-centric approach, “Works for Me.” This approach showcases
Sprint’s renewed promise of working obsessively for its customers and
delivering solutions that “work for them” on their terms.
