DALLAS, May 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- As summer approaches, AT&T* is breaking down wireless walls to the countries our customers travel to the most: Mexico and Canada.
Starting May 20, customers can get our new Mexico roaming feature for no additional charge when they switch to our new Mobile Share Value 15GB and higher plans. This means customers on a new Mobile Share Value 15GB and higher plan get unlimited calling, texting, and use of their plan data in and between Mexico and the United States.1
New and existing customers with an AT&T Unlimited Plan can say goodbye to roaming charges in both Mexico and Canada. Talk, text and use data in and between the United States, Mexico and Canada for no roaming charge.2
AT&T Unlimited Plan customers will need to separately add the AT&T Roam North AmericaSM feature to each smartphone and the Roam North America DataSM feature to each tablet, both at no additional charge, to activate the roaming benefits. The features can be added through myAT&T, online at www.att.com, or by calling AT&T.
AT&T's largest network in all of North America allows us to deliver these amazing benefits to our customers.3
"We know our customers want the same experience abroad they're used to domestically. And only AT&T can deliver the premier LTE experience they want," said David Christopher, chief marketing officer, AT&T Entertainment Group. "Around 20 percent of our postpaid base travels to Mexico or Canada once per year. This is a fantastic benefit for customers that will only get better. We're aiming to cover 100 million people in Mexico with 4G LTE by the end of 2018."
Business is now borderless too. Beginning May 20, business customers can also get our new Mexico roaming feature for no additional charge when they switch to a new Mobile Share Value 15GB or higher plan. In addition, business customers will automatically receive Mexico roaming benefits when they activate on new Mobile Select plans priced $20 per month or higher, while business customers with existing Mobile Select plans priced $20 per month or higher will be migrated to new plans with the Mexico roaming benefits.4
We know your business is local and global. You need the right tools to complement your business as you travel between the U.S. and Mexico. These are great plans for our more than a million business customers who travel to Mexico frequently.
