Roam Mobility has just announced what it claims is North America’s lowest priced wireless service with its new Snowbird Talk+Text plan. Priced at just under $20 a month, this new plan offers unlimited US talk, global texting, and long distance calls to Canada for what amounts to 67 cents per day. To put things in perspective, Roam announced a similar plan offering unlimited talk and text for $2.95 per day in July. The only difference is that July’s plan offered unlimited 2G data, while this one doesn’t.
“Our goal has always been to make roaming an afterthought, so we’re pleased to provide Canadians living part-time in the U.S. with the lowest priced Tier 1 service in North America,” said Emir Aboulhosn, founder and CEO of Roam Mobility.
“For less than $1 a day, Canadians can stay connected with their American friends as well as call family and friends back home in Canada; at a price that would make any American jealous and wondering why they can’t get the same deal.”
If you do want data, Roam is willing to give you 2GB per month for an additional $20 per month. The Snowbird Talk+Text+Data plan is 2GB of 4G data, unlimited 2G data, as well as unlimited talk and text for $39.95 per month. This is significantly cheaper than going with the regular Talk+Text Snowbird plan and adding data through Roam’s data bolt-ons (where 1GB of LTE costs $15).
