Sprint's Open World add-on makes it more affordable to travel to Mexico, Canada, and Latin America

Sprint has announced a new free add-on, called "Open World," that brings a number of cool additions for frequent international callers and travelers. In all, the add-on offers free calls and texts to Canada and Mexico, along with rates starting at five cents for Latin American countries. Moreover, Sprint says that frequent travelers in the Americas will score free calls and texts when traveling in Canada, Mexico, and "more than a dozen Latin American countries."

In addition to calls and texts, Sprint says that the Open World add-on includes 1GB of free data when traveling in Mexico, Canada, Dominican Republic, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama and Paraguay. Each additional GB of data will cost $30 based on actual usage. So, if you use less than anticipated, you'll pay less.

Finally, for those traveling outside of the Americas, Sprint says that Open World also includes a base rate of 20 cents per minute, along with free texts from several European, Middle Eastern, and Asian countries.
