[GTALUG] Alternative to Rogers

When I'm traveling to the US I just load up my Roam Mobility Card before I
leave. It's a MUCH better deal than using one of the CDN providers with
roam option.


This company uses T-Mobile network. I have not had a issue with coverage(a
few yrs ago in VT it was pretty spotty, but other wise when I drive to NJ
there is zero problems)
At some point in the past you could choose the City where you got a number
from. Now it's a random location when you signup.

512MB  per-day is plenty and if you do use it up it just slows down to 2G
speeds afterwards. For Emails and GPS it's plenty.
