The plan costs $7.99 a day [for US bound travellers] which comes with 50MB of 3G data a day. Some some of us, 50MB seems extremely limiting but Rogers assures us that this is "twice the data a Rogers wireless customer would typically use per day while in Canada".
Telus and Bell don't yet offer by the day plans for Canadians visiting the US:
- Telus has a plan that costs $40 and offers 100MB for 30 days ($1 per extra MB).
- Bell has a plan that costs $40 and offers 100MB for 30 days ($0.40 per extra MB)
My next blog entry will be about a Canadian service called Roam Mobility that offers another option for users who own unlocked smartphones.
