On Monday, AT&T announced a new agreement with the Canadian-based cellular provider Rogers making it the first United States carrier to offer International 4G LTE roaming.
With the new agreement, those with roaming enabled on their 4G LTE-capable devices will be able to move out of range of AT&Tís cellular towers and piggyback off of Rogersí cellular towers in Canada while still achieving a 4G LTE signal.
Our agreement with Rogers affirms our commitment to deliver superior international coverage to our customers. AT&T customers already have access to the nationís fastest, most reliable 4G LTE network while in the United States and now they can enjoy LTE speeds while roaming in Canada.
AT&T customers can select from one of three Data Global Add-On packages that offer discounted rates in Canada and over 150 countries Ė 120MB for $30/mo; 300MB for $60/mo; and 800MB for $120/mo.
In addition to the new ties in Canada, AT&T has been stepping up its game all across the United States. The cellular provider might not have as much 4G LTE coverage as Verizon does, but it certainly has one of the fastest 4G LTE networks in the country. Today's announcement just gives AT&T a little more leverage over its competition.
