Rogers plans to launch a $7.99 United States pay-per-use roaming fee “this Spring”

“We’ve heard you.” This is what Rogers declared on their company blog today. Apparently 99% of Rogers customers who travel to the States “use less than 50 MB of data per day when roaming.” This is why coming “this Spring” Rogers will introduce a new $7.99 United States pay-per-use roaming fee. This 50MB of data will be good over a 24-hour period, which Rogers says allows for customers to:

– Browse 50 maps or
– Browse 200 web pages or
– Send 1,000 emails or
– Send 5,000 Tweets or
– Send 128 photos

High roaming fees have been a pain for Canadians for years and the carriers have slowly reduced their rates. We’ve recently seen TELUS, Bell, Mobilicity and WIND offer lower roaming packages to customers… and by “this Spring” will probably see all the carriers continue to reduce their roaming options.
