Update: Roam Mobility has just announced a new distribution agreement for sales of its SIM cards at 500 7-Eleven locations in Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario, and Saskatchewan. The cost is the same as before at $19.95 for the standard, micro and nanoSIM versions.
“The new partnership with 7-Eleven helps us deliver greater flexibility and convenience to existing and new customers,” says Emir Aboulhosn, founder and SVP Business Development of Roam Mobility. “Even if you’re heading out early in the morning or late at night, you can pick up your SIM on the way and avoid paying roaming fees in the US.”
Roam Mobility launched their U.S. voice and data roaming service back in January of last year. This gives Canadians who travel to the United States an option to save money by purchasing one of their SIM cards, or SIM and mobile devices, with a low-cost plan – a basic talk, text and data package is $4/day. Roam offers up a standard SIM, microSIM and will be releasing a nanoSIM that’s compatible with the iPhone 5 and other devices in May.
Today the Vancouver-based company announced that their SIM cards can be found in over 400 locations across Canada, including Future Shop, Shaw, and Pipestone Travel and a new partnership with 76 London Drugs locations in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba.
Emir Aboulhosn, founder and SVP Business Development of Roam Mobility, stated that “the market was really crying out for a simple, low cost and Tier 1 solution to the problem of outrageous roaming fees for Canadians travelling across the border.” Roam says that they can save you more than 90% when compared to our Canadian carriers roaming rates.
