Cuba joins the United States, Europe, Mexico, China, Australia and New Zealand in reduced roaming costs.

Bell customers who are travelling to Cuba can now buy mobile data usage for as low as 60 cents per MB, voice calling for 50 cents a minute and texts for 15 cents each.

“Bell customers asked us for better roaming rates to the places they travel to the most, so they can enjoy the same great smartphone experience they have at home while travelling abroad,” said Wade Oosterman, President of Bell Mobility. “We are pleased to add Cuba to the growing list of countries where we’ve significantly lowered the cost of mobile roaming for Canadian consumers.”

Bell also introduced convenient Travel Data Passes that offer usage monitoring and alerts, and can be purchased before or during travel using the Bell Mobility self-serve app.
