    That’s huge for travelers to Cuba. Without roaming, data is pretty much restricted to government provided wifi at hotels and town squares. There were some ways to get cell data as a visitor (locals generally aren’t allowed) but it isn’t that easy and is super expensive. $10/day is a steal if it works.

      I wonder if the Cuban government would censor the cell network? The wifi down there is limited in what you can access.

      I assume so, but I never had any issues with blocked sites…then again was wasn’t browsing pr0n in the lobby 😉

      The p0rn wasn’t a problem. I tried to download an app and the selection in the Play store was very limited.

      People who visit Cuba are basically criminals by supporting tourism and directly funding the Cuban government which oppresses their people. The RCMP should arrest any Canadian upon return to Canada.

      You must be fun at parties.

    Good to see Philippines included as well although they have pretty good prepaid choices over there.

    Nobody should be visiting Cuba until the dictatorial regime there is ousted and made accountable for their actions against their people. In addition, most hotels there are government of Cuba owned, and spy on their visitors and hold you for ransom if you accidentally break something. Canada really should ban travel there.

      Booo. I’ll put up with human rights abuses to have a tropical beach with no Americans.

      Americans are starting to go there now.

      A few. But the big Orange man in the white house will but a stop to that soon. #maga

      As opposed the the Canadian Prime Minister who racks up 6 figure vacations on your dime.

      Shows your true colors. You are very self centered and lack a true Canadian identity. Enjoy Cuba, but make sure you don’t damage any of the hotel property or they will shake you down for 10X the value of the damage. (Google CBC Cuba damaged tv), you’ll see.

      This is why nobody likes you.

      Looks like Andy Holt changed his opinion.

    Telus was late to the better roaming prices party but they’ve done a really good job of adding a great deal of countries. Kudos to them, but I hope they keep on going as there are a lot more countries out there. Rogers, please make an effort to catch up, you were first out and then when Telus jumped on the bandwagon, you became second place and have stayed there.
