Sprint has introduced a international add-on “Open World” which is reminiscent of T-Mobile’s “Mobile without boarder” plan that has already come into effect from July 15, 2015.
T-Mobile’s “Mobile without boarder” plan allows their all Simple choice customers to use their phone in Canada and Mexico just like they are using in US. Customers also allowed to use other features like Music Freedom, Wi-Fi calling in Canada and Mexico just like they would in US.
Unlike T-Mobile, Sprint’s “Open World” also offers 1GB of 3G data for free when you are in Mexico, and Canada along with other 12 countries like the Dominican Republic, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama and Paraguay. But after consuming this 1GB free data, you have to pay high price $30 per GB for additional data, billed in KB increments.
Sprint Open World offer allows you to make unlimited free calls and texting when you are traveling to all above 14 countries but when you are in US, you can make free calls and texing to Canada and Mexico while a discounted rate will be applicable when to make calls to other 12 countries.
Sprint Open World also offers free texting, $0.20 per minute calls, and $30 per GB data to travelers who are visiting Australia, Denmark, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Palestinian territories, Russia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden and United Kingdom.
Comparing both international add-ons of both carriers, this time Sprints looks heavier.
