Verizon becomes first US carrier to offer roaming in Cuba

Buoyed By iPhones Sales Verizon Reports Stong Earnings

Verizon announced on Thursday that it will begin offering call, text and data access to customers visiting the Caribbean nation as part of its Pay-As-You-Go International Travel option. The plan will charge $3 a minute for voice, standard international messaging rates and a whopping $2.05 per megabyte. That means you’d be on the hook for more than two grand if you used a gigabyte of data while on the island. At those rates, you’d be better off bringing a pocket full of change and taking your chances with a public pay phone. This announcement comes on the heels of T-Mobile’s declaration that it is expanding its Simple Global plan to 20 more countries (though not Cuba).
