Boost Mobile now offers its Miami customers a Cuba calling and texting plan
As relations between the US and Cuba continue to thaw, Sprint hopes to cash in on the opportunity. Its prepaid division Boost Mobile is now marketing a new plan for customers in Miami that provides unlimited texting and industry-low per minute prices for calls to Cuba.
There are two Cuba Monthly Connect plans: for $50/month, customers get unlimited domestic talk and text, unlimited data with 5GB at 3G/4G speeds, unlimited texting to Cuba, and 15 minutes of voice calling to Cuba per month. For $60/month, customers get all of this, plus 10GB of high speed data per month.
Current customers can also add a new $15/month feature to any other Boost plan that gives them 50 minutes of calls to Cuba and unlimited international texts. This works out to $0.30/minute – the lowest rate of any national carrier.
Sprint says that these plans are only available for a limited time, so if you are interested, jump on them now. The carrier also says it will make a $10,000 donation to Roots of Hope, a nonprofit organization in Cuba whose mission is to empower Cuban youth.[Sprint]
