I have talked a few times in this Blog about the exorbitant prices charged by Rogers and Bell to us frequent travellers to the U.S. for roaming. In fact I have recommended that if you are a Snowbird you would be wise to suspend your Canadian service and get yourself a pay-as-you-play U.S. phone from Tracfone or put a U.S. Sim card in your phone.
I’m pleased to see that Telus now has a Canadian – U.S. Plan for Smartphone users. For $75.00 Telus treats calling and texting the same in Canada and the U.S. – You can add Data to the plan as required. For example 1GB of Data costs $25.00 however they are offering a Bonus 2GB for no charge. Therefore you get 3GB, regardless as to where you are, for $25.00/mth.
If you are a serious U.S. traveller check out this offer.
