BELLEVUE, Wa. & NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Univision Mobile™, the wireless service launched by Univision Communications Inc. and T-Mobile (NYSE: TMUS) in May 2014, has added new international features to its existing rate plans, making it easier and more affordable for Hispanic Americans to stay in touch with family and friends in Latin America and around the world. The breakthrough no-annual contract wireless service that was built from the ground up for U.S. Hispanics, now has industry-leading international services built into every plan. At no extra charge, customers can call from the United States to mobile or landlines in 200 countries, including all of Latin America, and roam in 15 Latin American countries, including Mexico.
“We have heard loud and clear from our Univision Mobile customers that staying in touch with family and friends outside of the U.S. is one of the most important features of any wireless plan,” said Kevin Conroy, President, Digital & Enterprise Development, Univision Communications Inc. “With Univision Mobile’s new international calling services, it’s easier and more affordable for those who love to make international calls and send texts, to stay in touch with those who live in Latin America.”
Now hassle-free international calling services and voice and text roaming are part of every plan, bringing Univision Mobile customers the features they want with unbeatable convenience – for no extra charge.
“Other wireless brands force you to buy additional International add-on features when you want to text and call other countries,” said Mike Sievert, Chief Marketing Officer, T-Mobile. “Not with Univision Mobile. Now you can call and text from the U.S., and even roam in other countries, at no extra charge and with nothing to sign up for. Combine that with T-Mobile’s Data Strong 4G LTE network experience, and you get the best value, period.”
