Company cuts Data Only plan pricing by 50 percent and triples data
allowance on Talk+Text+Data plans in time for holiday travel season
VANCOUVER, Oct. 17, 2013 /CNW/ - Roam Mobility, the leading independent provider of roaming service for Canadians
visiting the U.S., announced today that the company has cut pricing on
Data Only plans by 50 percent and has increased the data allowance on
Talk+Text+Data plans from 100 MB to 300 MB per day. The modified
pricing structure comes as welcome news for nearly 19 million Canadians
who travel to the U.S. every year.
"Our new pricing and data allowance is truly the best deal for any
Canadian travelling to the USA," said Emir Aboulhosn, founder and SVP
Business Development of Roam Mobility. "For $3.95 per day you get
unlimited talk, text and 300 MB. That's 50 percent lower and six times
more data than roaming packages from other Canadian carriers."
Under the new pricing structure, Roam Mobility offers Data Only plans
for as cheap as a penny per MB, depending on the amount of data
purchased. A new 300 MB data plan that is valid for three days has been
added for $7.95, and the prices of 500MB, 1GB, 2GB and 5GB plans have
been reduced by as much as 50 percent. The plans aim to serve
data-hungry travellers with tablets and smartphone devices.
The Talk+Text+Data plan, currently offered for $3.95, now provides
travellers with 300 MB of data per day instead of 100 MB. In addition,
the 3 day plan has increased to 900MB, the 7 day to 2GB, 14 day to 4GB
and 30 day to 9GB. All Talk+Text+Data plans still include unlimited
talk, text and free long-distance calls to Canada.
"The average person uses roughly 1 to 1.5 GB per month, or approximately
35 to 50 MB per day," explained Aboulhosn. "From light to very heavy
users, this new data allowance gives all Canadians an extraordinary
