Roam Mobility Inc. cut the price of its “Data Only” plans in half and raised the data allowance on its “Talk+Text+Data” plan for customers traveling to the U.S., the company said. The Vancouver-based telecom provider said in a release Thursday that it was raising the data allowance for its “Talk+Text+Data” plan from 100 MB to 300 MB per day. The plan, which costs $4 per day, also includes unlimited voice and data, the company said. In its release, Roam Mobility said it was also adding “a new 300 MB data plan” that will cost $8 per day, and that it has reduced the price of its 500 MB, 1 GB, and 2 GB plans by “as much as 50 percent.” The company added that it has also increased the data allowance of its multi-day plans, increasing its three-day plan to 900 MB, its seven-day plan to 2 GB, its 14 day-plan to 4 GB, and its 30-day plan to 9 GB of total usage. Roam Mobility launched its own network in 2012, and offers phones, portable WiFi hotspots and SIM cards that can be used in any unlocked GSM phone, enabling Canadians travelling to the U.S. to roam for a daily cost. The CRTC launched in August a fact-finding exercise into Canadian carriers’ roaming rates in Canada and the U.S., citing consumer complaints as its motivating factor. The federal government also said this week that it will take steps to reduce domestic roaming rates in Canada. In September, BCE Inc. cut the price of its U.S. roaming package, while Rogers Communications Inc. introduced new roaming rates in May for customers traveling to the U.S.
