Canadian Snowbirds can now enjoy U.S. nationwide unlimited talk and text and free calls to Canada for $19.95 a month with Roam Mobility
VANCOUVER, Nov. 12, 2014 /CNW/ - Roam Mobility, the leading independent provider of roaming service for Canadians visiting the U.S., announced today that the company has launched North America's lowest priced prepaid service for Canadians travelling south of the border. The Snowbird Talk+Text plan includes unlimited nationwide talk, global text, and long distance calls to Canada for C$19.95 a month or sixty-seven cents a day.
For snowbirds requiring data, Roam Mobility is doubling the amount of high-speed, 4G LTE data available with the Snowbird Talk+Text+Data plan - 2GB per month, in addition to unlimited 2G data, unlimited talk, and text all for C$39.95 a month – or an amazing $1.33 a day.
The Snowbird Plans are available exclusively to Canadians and are different from other roaming plans that claim to be the best deal for Canadian consumers. Roam Mobility has no hidden fees, no fine print, and customers aren't required to upgrade to a new pricey shared plan or leave a high quality network in order to take advantage of the offer – it is just C$19.95 a month for unlimited talk and text in the U.S. with free calls back home to Canada.
"Our goal has always been to make roaming an afterthought, so we're pleased to provide Canadians living part-time in the U.S. with the lowest priced Tier 1 service in North America," said Emir Aboulhosn, founder and CEO of Roam Mobility. "For less than $1 a day, Canadians can stay connected with their American friends as well as call family and friends back home in Canada; at a price that would make any American jealous and wondering why they can't get the same deal."
Like all Roam Mobility plans, the Snowbird Talk+Text plan is easy to use – simply purchase a Roam Mobility SIM for your existing unlocked phone and activate it online and schedule when you want to start your service for 3 a month period. No contracts, no eligibility requirements and the offer is available to all Canadians travelling to the U.S. When you return home, your service will be waiting for you until your next visit with no account suspension fees.
"This year we've seen U.S. roaming rates come down thanks to certain carriers that are claiming to have the best price on roaming, so we encourage Canadians to read the fine print when looking for a U.S. roaming plan or find a more affordable service like Roam Mobility," said Aboulhosn. "Customers tell us that they have been forced to switch plans with their carriers to save on roaming only to end up paying much more on their existing monthly plans. Roam Mobility provides transparent and straightforward plans – leaving our over 100,000 Canadian customers with one less thing to think about during their travels."
Customers travelling to the U.S. for shorter periods for business or vacation, can enjoy no-commitment coverage while travelling with our unlimited daily plans which are $1.95, $2.95 or $3.95 a day – depending on the service they need while visiting the U.S.
The Roam SIM Card and other Roam Mobility products are available at over 2,300 locations across Canada including convenience stores, airports, duty- free stores, electronics retailers and travel stores. Roam Mobility products may also be purchased online at www.roammobility.com.
