Verizon to Offer (Very Expensive) Roaming in Cuba

18 Sep 2015 | Author: | No comments yet »

Verizon is First U.S. Wireless Company to Offer Roaming in Cuba.

Starting next week, customers touring the Caribbean island can talk, message, and surf the Web via Verizon’s Pay-As-You-Go International Travel feature. So if you blow through 1GB of data uploading selfies to Instagram, tapping into Google Maps, and texting friends back home, you’d end up paying more than $2,000—possibly more than the trip itself. “Our customers are citizens of the world, and we want them to seamlessly enjoy a great Verizon experience wherever they travel,” Javier Farfan, vice president of cultural and segment marketing at Verizon, said in a statement.

Stay connected with one of Verizon’s sanctioned World Devices: Apple iPhone 5c, 5s, 6, 6 Plus, 6s, or 6s Plus; Samsung Galaxy S5, S6, or S6 Edge; or the Motorola Droid Maxx. You’ll also need to opt in to the International Travel option. “By offering international services while traveling in Cuba, we are making it simple and easy for customers to stay connected wherever and whenever they choose,” Farfan said. For more information about international rates and qualifying phones, visit www.vzw.com/international Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE, Nasdaq: VZ), headquartered in New York, employs a diverse workforce of 178,500 and generated more than $127 billion in 2014 revenues. Verizon isn’t the only one extending a friendly hand to Cuba: Netflix in February announced the expansion of its video-streaming service into the nation, though the region still struggles with limited Internet access.

But if you’ve got a hankering for a few episodes of Orange Is The New Black or want to check out the new 6 Years film, visit the Havana cultural center where free public Wi-Fi access can be found. Verizon also provides converged communications, information and entertainment services over America’s most advanced fiber-optic network, and delivers integrated business solutions to customers worldwide.

For those looking to immerse themselves in the Cuban experience, Airbnb recently launched about 1,000 listings in the country, most of which cost around $30 per night.
