T Mobile USA has signed an interconnect and roaming agreement with Cuba's state owned telecoms company, Empresa De Telecomunicaciones De Cuba.

The roaming agreement comes into effect this summer, and is a conseqencue of the thawing of relations between Cuba and the USA.

"The historic opening of Cuba is a natural opportunity for us to take action, and we are. That's the Un-carrier way!" said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. "We have more customers of Cuban descent than any other wireless provider - so connecting them with family and friends in Cuba is a message we heard loud and clear!"

T-Mobile claims that more than a third (36.6%) of Cuban-born wireless customers are with T-Mobile, more than AT&T and triple the number of Verizon customers.
