Sprint announced Tuesday it has added four new destinations to its Open World and Global Roaming offerings.

With the addition of Peru, Guam, Northern Marianas and Saipan, the plans now cover 76 destinations across the globe, Sprint said.

The additions mark the carrier’s latest expansion of its global roaming features in a fierce climate for international calling options. In September, Sprint added 33 countries to the features, including France, Fiji and islands across the Caribbean. The plans also cover Mexico, Canada and 14 countries in Latin America.

The Open World feature includes calls, texts and 1 GB of high speed data in Mexico, Canada and 14 countries in Latin America, as well as texting, discounted calling and high speed data for $30 per GB in other locations covered by the plan. Sprint Global Roaming offers customers unlimited 2G data, unlimited texts and calls for 20 cents per minute in covered countries.

T-Mobile and Verizon also announced new international calling options in September, with the former adding 20 new countries to its Simple Global Un-Carrier 3.0 initiative and the latter becoming the first carrier to open roaming in Cuba.

Last week, Sprint announced its own roaming agreement in Cuba that will allow voice calls for $2.49 per minute and data for $1.99 per megabyte. SMS text messaging is 50 cents to send and free to receive.
