Mobile broadband plans that cover USA & Canada?
posted by herox to technology (3 answers total)
I will be frequently travelling between the USA and Canada. Like about 4-5 days in each country, rotating constantly. I rely on cell service and mobile broadband on a constant basis. Constantly on the move. I also need high bandwidth/month.
Voice plans seem easy enough to get with reasonable pricing.. but the data plans are frustrating me.
I currently use millenicom for my mobile broadband, since its about the only unlimited access service I can find these days. But of course, they don't cover Canada.
Is there a company and or plan that covers both USA and Canada without charging crazy $/kb or $/mb rates when in the 'other country'? US companies charge about $60-80 for 5GB/month when in the USA, but then when in Canada: Verizon recently changed their costs to about $2/MB, and At&t wants about $15/MB. That's just nuts. As an exampole, even at $2/Mb, that's $10 to download 1 mp3.
Is the best option to buy two plans, one for USA coverage, and then when I'm in Canada, buy something up there?
