Sprint is teaming up with Movistar Mexico & El Salvador, a large telecommunications brand owned by Telefónica, to become the first U.S. provider allowing customers to pay for a loved one’s wireless plan in Mexico and El Salvador.
With the exclusive Plan Conectados through the Sprint World Top-Up app, Sprint customers in the United States can easily give wireless access to their loved ones in Mexico or El Salvador for just $25 a month.
The cost is billed directly to the user’s Sprint bill and then applied to their family’s or friend’s Movistar prepaid account.
The Top-Up App also allows U.S. customers to add money to prepaid accounts in 23 Latin American and Caribbean countries hassle-free, irrespective of their in-country plan and available for most carriers.
Making it Easy to Stay Connected
In 2015, U.S. immigrants sent an estimated $133.5 billion to relatives in their native country across the globe. Remittances to Latin America and the Caribbean grew nearly 8% from 2015 to 2016, amounting to approximately US $70 billion.
Mexico received over 26 billion and El Salvador took in close to 5 billion, highlighting the need for affordable plans and services.
