Rogers Communications Inc. introduced a new North American roaming plan Tuesday for frequent travellers to the United States. The plan, called the North American One Rate, allows users to use email, mobile web surfing, and downloading without incurring roaming fees, a release said. The release cited technology analyst Carmi Levy, who said smartphone and mobile Internet stick customers have “made it clear that they're not terribly fond of end-of-month surprises on their bill.” Rogers said the North American roaming plan is offered at “the most affordable advertised rates in Canada.” The roaming is available for a wide range of plan sizes and cost about $10 more per month than other equivalent roaming plans, the release said. Bell Aliant filed a legal claim in a New Brunswick court this month over Rogers’ advertising claim that it has the “fastest and most reliable” high speed Internet product. More than 30 per cent of its “postpaid” wireless customers use data-enabled smartphones, an increase of more than 10 per cent from early 2009, the release said.
