As US-Cuban relations thaw, Western businesses have moved in and started paving the way for tourism. Sprint and Verizon made arrangements last fall with Empresa De Telecomunicaciones De Cuba, S.A. (ETECSA) last fall to get their vacationing customers can use text, data and voice within the country. T-Mobile just announced a similar deal with the government-owned Cuban telecommunications company for roaming privileges and cheaper calls into the island nation.While the other Western telecoms beat it to the Communist nation, T-Mobile's agreement also includes cheaper calls to Cuban landlines and wireless numbers under its Stateside International Talk option. They weren't the first to get benefits, but at least Simple Choice customers won't have to use burner phones or swap SIM cards during their Cuban vacations when the roaming deal kicks in this summer.Business Wire
