Rogers announced back in September that it had signed an LTE roaming agreement with AT&T to allow its customers to use LTE while visiting our neighbours to the south. AT&T, the second largest carrier in the U.S., today announced a reciprocal deal that will see it offer LTE roaming through Rogers to its customers while they are travelling in Canada. This deal also makes it the first U.S. carrier to offer international LTE roaming.
“Our agreement with Rogers affirms our commitment to deliver superior international coverage to our customers,” said Bill Hague, executive vice president, International, Alliances and Integrations, AT&T Mobility. “AT&T customers already have access to the nation’s fastest, most reliable 4G LTE network while in the United States and now they can enjoy LTE speeds while roaming in Canada.”
AT&T offers three Data Global Add-On packages ranging from 120MB for US$30 per month to 800MB for US$120 per month. These cover not only LTE roaming in Canada but roaming in about 150 additional countries worldwide.
AT&T also revealed that 42% of its postpaid customers are now using an LTE device.
