Sprint is so good, you can take it with you when you leave the country. Okay, maybe its service isn't the best. Whatever. It's cheap. That's why you signed up, right?
Now when you travel to Colombia, Denmark, Honduras, Ireland, Italy, Paraguay, or Sweden with an International Value Roaming plan, you can roam data for free. You're limited to 2G speeds and might not always be able to find a connection, but again, it's free. If you do need faster connectivity, you can get 3G for the not-at-all-tempting prices of $15-$50 for 100-500MB of data that last up to fourteen days.
These additions join the likes of Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Germany, Guatemala, Japan, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Russia, South Korea, Spain, and the UK. Altogether, this comes to twenty-two supported countries around the world. It hardly compares to the over 100 that T-Mobile offers free roaming in, but at least it's something.
Sprint Expands Free Data Roaming to Colombia, Denmark, Honduras, Ireland, Italy, Paraguay and Sweden
OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (BUSINESS WIRE), May 15, 2015 - Sprint (NYSE: S) continues to expand its free International Value Roaming service making it easy for customers to stay connected when traveling to 22 countries around the world. With International Value Roaming, new and existing Sprint customers can roam with up to 2G speeds to read emails and surf the web at no additional charge1.

International Speed Data Roaming Passes
Customers looking for higher data speeds can choose from three of our Sprint International Speed Data Roaming options offering up to 3G network speeds2 for one-day, seven-day and 14-day passes, starting at just $15 (excludes taxes and fees).
Customers also have the option to connect their phone to the millions of hotspots throughout Latin America, Europe, South America and Japan, and use Wi-Fi Calling to enjoy free calls from over 200 countries back to the U.S. Wi-Fi Calling is available at no additional charge when calling a U.S., U.S. Virgin Islands or Puerto Rico phone number3. Wi-Fi Calling is available on iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s and select Android devices. This is superior to AT&T and Verizon who don’t offer Wi-Fi calling on the iPhone and their customers who travel internationally still have to worry about getting charged for every gigabyte of data, every text and every phone call.
Additional International Offers
Sprint offers voice and data coverage to additional countries around the world with affordable international data packs and Sprint Worldwide Voice. Visit www.sprint.com/international for more information on countries and rates.
