Sprint has decided to expand its Open World travel add-on by adding unlimited high speed data in Brazil (albeit only temporarily). Why, you ask? This is all in joining in on the spirit of the Rio Olympic Games to be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil this year. Excitement for the Olympics is about to reach fever pitch and for subscribers of Sprint, it is good to know that the major US wireless carrier is now competing against the likes of AT&T and T-Mobile in offering a roaming deal for those who are looking to be part of the 31st Olympic Games.
Sprint first offered its Open World feature back in August of last year, offering free voice calls, text messaging, and high speed data in countries such as Canada and Mexico, as well as specific locations in Latin America. Fast forwarding to around five months, the wireless carrier continues to expand the service’s reach, recently announcing that it has added 36 new countries and locations to its Open World and Global Roaming features. With the new additions, Open World’s total count is now at 110 destinations around the world.
For reference, here are the 36 new additions to the Open World feature:
The four biggest wireless carriers in the United States -- Verizon Wireless, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint -- have decided to help all of its subscribers affected with Hurricane Patricia by completely waiving all fees for international voice calls and text messages between the US and Mexico.

Three of the biggest four wireless carriers in the United States have now added new voice and data roaming options to their respective range of mobile services. The biggest of them all, Verizon Wireless, has decided to to allow its subscribers who are planning a trip to Cuba to use voice, data, text roaming from within the island nation. As for T-Mobile and Sprint, they both have added new countries and territories to their worldwide roaming features, providing their subscribers with even more free text messaging and low rate data and voice calls when traveling across the globe.
As the competition in wireless plans continues to heat up, the pricing gets cheaper by the minute. And this is not only becoming true for domestic wireless plans, but also for rates of international wireless services, as more and more carriers start to offer better roaming prices.
Sprint is the latest to join the club. The wireless carrier recently introduced brand new international roaming deals for mobile users who frequently find themselves travelling all across the North And South American continents.
