Verizon announced on Thursday that it will begin offering call, text and data access to customers visiting the Caribbean nation as part of its Pay-As-You-Go International Travel option. The plan will charge $3 a minute for voice, standard international messaging rates and a whopping $2.05 per megabyte. That means you'd be on the hook for more than two grand if you used a gigabyte of data while on the island. At those rates, you'd be better off bringing a pocket full of change and taking your chances with a public pay phone. This announcement comes on the heels of T-Mobile's declaration that it is expanding its Simple Global plan to 20 more countries (though not Cuba).
