Sprint has signed international 4G roaming agreements with Digicel in Jamaica and Global Mobile in Taiwan, leveraging the global ecosystem for 4G services to enable travelers on the go.
Users by selecting Sprint devices that operate with its SmartView Connection Manager will automatically detect the Digicel and Global Mobile networks, giving customers the option to connect and roam with an unlimited 24 hour Daypass.
The Sprint SmartView Connection Manager allows users to create a high-speed Internet connection for their computer anywhere on the Sprint 3G or 4G networks or on compatible international networks with a Mobile Broadband Device.
Sprint customers traveling to Jamaica and Taiwan will be able to access the Digicel and Global Mobile 4G networks for mobile downloads, video chat capabilities and turbo-charged Web browsing at 4G speeds.
The Sprint SmartView features: one-click activation for supported devices; GPS features and services are available at the touch of a button for GPS-capable devices; easy connections to Sprint Wi-Fi networks around the globe, available on a pay-as-you-go basis; and access to Sprint support services and tools via the Application section.
Sprint 4G president Matt Carter said the company is kicking down the door to 4G international roaming and taking a first step toward allowing people to enjoy 4G service wherever they are around the globe.
"We’ve taken the 4G leadership position in the US and are now proud to partner with visionaries Digicel and Global Mobile to solidify our international leadership role," Carter said.
