Canadian businesses that travel to the US can now purchase Roam Mobility's SIM cards and unlocked travel phones at Staples store locations across Canada.
VANCOUVER, May 13, 2014 /CNW/ - Today, Roam Mobility announced all Staples locations across Canada, and their online store at Staples.ca, will carry roaming replacement products. This will help reduce the phone bill for the millions of Canadians who travel in the US.
With over 100,000 customers, Roam Mobility is the leader in roaming replacement services for Canadians travelling to the US each year. Roam's SIM cards and unlocked phones connect Canadians to affordable talk, text and data while in the US.
"Travel is a major business expense, and the most popular business destination for Canadians is the US," explains Emir Aboulhosn, founder and CEO of Roam Mobility. "Canadian business travellers in the US often face large roaming fees as they need to call, email and download on a regular basis, and it can get expensive."
Roam Mobility products connect Canadian travellers to a Tier 1 wireless network in the US, with unlimited plans starting at just $3 per day — a fraction of the cost of conventional roaming rates.
"Staples Canada is always looking for innovative products that help the business community save money and stay competitive," says Joanna Lennox, category manager at Staples Canada. "Roam Mobility's popularity among our customers tells us that there's a need for an affordable solution to the high cost of cross-border connectivity."
Products include an unlocked QWERTY keyboard phone for $49.95, and standard/micro and nano SIM cards for $19.95 that work with any unlocked GSM phone sold by Canadian GSM carriers.
