U.S. wireless carrier Sprint has joined the likes of rivals AT&T and T-Mobile with an offer for customers traveling to the 2016 Olympic games.
Through its Open World program, Sprint said it is offering unlimited talk and text in Brazil as well as unlimited high-speed data during the games. Free to “qualified” Sprint customers, the Open World program usually offers up to 1 GB of high speed data to customers traveling in Latin America.
Sprint’s offer joins similar promotions from both AT&T and T-Mobile.
Back in June, AT&T said it would offer customers a “passport” to Brazil, with 1 GB of roaming data, access to more than 1,000 Wi-Fi hotspots, 30 minutes of calling and unlimited texting. The package offers 30 days of coverage for $50, AT&T said.
Last month, T-Mobile followed suit with its own offer geared toward Olympic travelers.
The Un-carrier said it is offering free unlimited high-speed data throughout Brazil for T-Mobile customers throughout the month of August. T-Mobile said it will also offer free calls within Brazil and to numbers in the United States and free worldwide texting. T-Mobile said customers don’t have to take any action to activate the offer.
The 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro are scheduled to begin on Friday, August 5 with opening ceremonies.
