Innovative carrier is first in Canada to remove roaming charges across the United States and Mexico with no extra charges
WHITEHORSE, YELLOWKNIFE and IQALUIT, March 29, 2017 /CNW/ - Ice Wireless, a mobile network operator committed to communities in Canada's North, is pleased to announce a series of innovative and affordable plans for Smartphones and other devices.
"We are committed to improving our network coverage and accessibility to rural communities while at the same time offering customers peace of mind and freedom to talk, text and roam wherever and whenever customers want with these new affordable plans," says Samer Bishay, President and CEO of Ice Wireless.
All the Smartphone plans include unlimited calls, texts and roaming throughout Canada, United States and Mexico starting from $59. Ice Wireless is the first Canadian carrier to eliminate roaming charges without daily or monthly add-on charges. The promotional Ice Unlimited plan includes unlimited data for $89 per month. Voice and text only plans start as low as $19 per month.
With upgrades of its network to LTE Advanced, Ice Wireless is bridging the Digital Divide between Canada's North and the rest of the country.
"For too long, Canadians in the North have paid outrageously high fees and been frozen out of basic communications services that customers in the south take for granted these days," Bishay says. "Not anymore. Our network upgrades and these new affordable plans are a giant leap forward and offering our customers value not seen by Canadians in the south."
