Canadian Roaming Data Charges


The Canadian traveller is faced with high roaming charges when visiting their southern neighbours in the U.S. It gets even worse when travelling further abroad to Europe, Central & South America, Asia, Africa, Australia & New Zealand.

Lucky Mobile, 7-Eleven SpeakOut and Petro Canada Mobility don't offer their customers the ability to roam at all!
