Rogers Communications, Canada's leading diversified communications and media company, today announced the launch of its new U.S. Travel Packs that make roaming even easier and more affordable for customers. These monthly packs offer more of what customers want including double the data, additional minutes, and unlimited texts at lower prices – just in time for the busy holiday travel season.
Customers now have access to a variety of U.S. roaming offers, including four new Travel Packs and the $7.99 per day U.S. roaming wireless data and Internet rate. All offers deliver more value, as part of the company's ongoing commitment to improve customers' roaming experiences and offer better cost certainty.
"Our simplified Travel Pack line-up enables our customers to roam with confidence and use their devices when they are south of the border just as they would at home – without worrying about paying more than expected," said Raj Doshi, senior vice president, product, Rogers Communications. "We've reduced prices and delivered more value in our U.S. Travel Packs to ensure customers continue to stay connected with access to even more data, voice and text services at an affordable rate."
Details on U.S. roaming offers are as follows:
|Daily Standard Rate||$7.99/50MB||–||–||50||24 hours|
|Talk & Text – Small||$20||25||100||–||1 month|
|Talk & Text – Large||$40||100||Unlimited||–||1 month|

|Talk, Text & Internet – Large||$80||100||Unlimited||500||1 month|
|* Incoming text messages are free for Rogers customers subscribing to a travel pack when roaming.|
Valid for up to one month, the new Travel Packs are recommended for customers travelling to the U.S. for longer periods of time or who want a combination of voice, text and data – all in one convenient package. Launched this May, the $7.99 U.S. wireless data and Internet roaming rate offers up to 50 MB of data per day and is ideal for consumers and small business customers that are travelling for shorter periods of time. Customers who elect not to purchase a U.S. Travel Pack will automatically take advantage of the $7.99 per day wireless data and Internet rate.
To keep customers connected at fast network speeds while travelling, Rogers was the first Canadian carrier to offer LTE roaming in the U.S., as well as in Switzerland, France, Hong Kong and South Korea.
