Canada's strong loonie has triggered a 25% surge in Canadians travelling to the U.S.
This in turn has sparked Rogers Communications to devise new roaming solutions to "predictably manage" data while abroad.
Now, customers on a Roaming Data Pass will get real-time data usage alerts while roaming, ensuring cost certainty and peace of mind. Data Passes start at $5 for consumers and small businesses.
“Customers have told us they’re concerned about roaming costs because they don’t have a true sense of how much data they use when travelling abroad,” said Raj Doshi, Vice President of Mobile Product Management, Rogers Communications Inc. “We’ve worked with wireless carriers around the world to deliver this innovative solution exclusively for our customers. The real-time data usage alerts will take the guess work out of roaming while our new data passes will give customers more choice and ways to save money, creating a worry-free travel experience.”
Data Passes are available in U.S. and international packages in one day and one week length denominations and can be pre-purchased or bought via one's smartphone while already abroad.
“These new options make roaming even more affordable for Canadians,” said Raj. “We’re continually introducing new plans and new solutions to give our customers the freedom to use their mobile devices worry free when they travel.”
Roaming offers can be added by texting “Travel” to 7626 or visiting Rogers Roam on a mobile device.
