Rogers Communications today launched long term evolution (LTE) wireless roaming service in the United States in partnership with American telecommunications company AT&T Inc. This will enable Roger’s mobile customers to roam wirelessly on a 4GT LTE network while travelling in the U.S.
The partnership also makes Rogers the first Canadian carrier to offer LTE roaming south of the border.
The service will cost Rogers customers $7.99 per day. It comes with 50 MB of data per day which is nearly twice the data a Rogers wireless customer would typically use on their smart phone in a day in Canada, according to the company.
“The demand for LTE speeds, the fastest wireless technology in the world, continues to explode,” said John Boynton, executive vice-president of Rogers in statement yesterday. “With this relationship, our customers can enjoy uninterrupted access to blazing fast wireless speeds whether they are at home on the Rogers LTE network or in the U.S.”
Earlier this year, Rogers also launched LTE roaming services for its customers traveling to Switzerland, Hong Kong and South Korea.
