International Direct Connect℠

International Direct Connect℠ simplifies coordination of a multinational workforce, improves the decision making process, and eliminates the need for long distance calling, calling cards, operators, busy signals, “phone tag”, voice mail messages and “on hold” time - just get right through. Use Direct Connect service with the U.S., Canada, Argentina, Brazil, and El Salvador when traveling to any of these countries. PTT roaming coverage for 3G devices is continuing to expand to new destinations. Check with your local market for availability.

NII Holdings' next generation high performance Push-to-Talk (PTT) service in Brazil is interoperable with Sprint Direct Connect service. International Direct Connect℠ (IDC) interoperability enables NII Holdings' subscribers with 3G PTT service in Brazil to instantly communicate with Sprint’s Direct Connect customers at the push of a button. The service operates both on NII home networks and while customers are roaming in international markets. IDC interoperability provides all of our PTT customers in Latin America with a reliable option to connect with Sprint’s US-based PTT users instantly, following the decommissioning of Sprint’s iDEN® network in 2013.
