International travellers visiting Canada can now get a local SIM card with unlimited nationwide talk and text, plus 4G LTE data and avoid expensive roaming fees.
VANCOUVER, Dec. 4, 2015 /CNW/ - Roam Mobility, the leading independent provider of roaming service for Canadians, today announced its newest product – the Canada Travel SIM card, made just for visitors to Canada.
The SIM cards come preloaded with plans ranging from 1 to 3 weeks and include unlimited talk and text, plus 4G LTE data. Just insert a SIM into any unlocked phone, start the plan when you arrive and enjoy nationwide coverage on Canada's largest LTE network to save you from expensive roaming charges with no contracts or commitments.
According to Destination Canada, the country's national tourism organization, travel to Canada rose 8% from 2014 to 2015, a trend that is expected to continue as the nation's popularity as a recreational destination increases.
"More than 17 million international visitors come to Canada every year," says Emir Aboulhosn, Founder and CEO of Otono. "For many, staying connected in Canada means paying high fees or being constrained by small data packages or limited minutes. Roam Mobility's Canada Travel SIM removes those restrictions and delivers the connectivity that today's travellers need."
All plans include unlimited Canada nationwide incoming and outgoing calls, unlimited global text messaging, 500MB of 4G LTE data, plus voice mail, caller ID, call waiting and hotspot tethering. You also get a dedicated Canadian phone number so that friends and family in Canada don't have to call long-distance to reach you. All plan prices include the SIM card for free, and no additional fees to activate or access the network.
Roam Mobility's Canada Travel SIMs can be ordered online today at roammobility.ca, and will be available at retail locations in Canada and worldwide soon.
