Sprint has launched its own Sprint Open World plans to take on T-Mobile. The company is offering 1 GB free 3G data per month, which can be used while roaming in Canada, Mexico and some other Latin America countries. The name countries of Latin America, where you can use Sprint this plan are Argentina, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Brazil, Costa Rica, Chile, Guatemala, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Panama, Honduras and Paraguay. Bolivia, Ecuador, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela are some countries, which will be added to this plan soon enough.
Marcelo Claure, CEO of Sprint said, “We’re opening up the world and breaking down borders so more Sprint customers can stay in touch with the people who are important to them,”.
This plan also includes texting and calling, meaning texting and calling in these countries while roaming will also be free, but if you want to use extra data, you have to pay $30 for every extra gigabyte. You will only be charged whatever amount you use, if you use less then you will be charged less.
International texts and calls will be free in Canada and Mexico, but you will be charged minimum 5 cents for each minute for calls to Latin America and other Sprint supported countries. With this plan, Sprint will definitely make your travelling less expensive and by looking at this plan it seems that Sprint has introduced the plan in response to T-Mobile. T-Mobile offers 4G LTE plan during roaming, but this doesn’t include country beyond Canada and Mexico, so here Sprint has upper hand.
