So we were wondering what exactly "T-Mobile roaming in Cuba" meant. So we called T-Mobile and this is what we learned.
If you are a T-Mobile customer and already have a T-Mobile plan:
1) Calling is $2.69 per minute
2) Texting is FREE
3) Internet usage/data usage is FREE
So the FREE part is great since I think most of us tend to text and get online more frequently than calling, the catch is that in order to use the internet you need to be within range of a data tower or hotspot. They are going up fast all over the island, so being within range of a wireless internet source shouldn't be a problem soon! So if you're planning on heading over to Cuba anytime soon it might be best to go ahead and get a T-Mobile plan (sans contract) for you and your team to use while in Cuba.
ShootCuba and EP Luis Lago were happy to provide production services to the Chanel team for their most recent fashion show in Cuba. With four seperate videos now available on Chanel's official youtube channel of the event, we are proud to say we were part of the beautiful process!
This deal between T-Mobile and ETECSA (Cuba's telecommunciations company) will allow T-Mobile data roaming, voice and text for vistiors in Cuba and make it easier for people in the U.S. to keep in touch with friends, family, crew members, who ever, in Cuba. Check out the details of the plan here on Cuba Journal.
