AT&T was the first and only U.S. cellular carrier to this day to offer 4G LTE data roaming in other countries. It all started last December with an agreement with the Canadian-based Rogers, and shortly after, AT&T signed an agreement with EE in the United Kingdom.
On Monday, AT&T happily announced to its customers that the carrier has signed even more agreements and is now offering 4G LTE data roaming in 13 new countries. Those locations include:
- South Korea
- Hong Kong
- Hong Kong and Antigua & Barbuda
AT&T notes that one more country is on the way in the near future, but doesn't give us any hints as to where it might be. The carrier also notes that there are plans in place for AT&T to offer data roaming in more than 200 countries around the world in the future.
Data roaming allows AT&T customers in the United States to go to other locations around the world and continue to have access to their blazing-fast 4G LTE data speeds while connected to a partnered cellular carrier's network. While the service is available to AT&T customers, that's not to say that it won't be costly. AT&T's data roaming prices are not cheap. It will ultimately be up to the user if the prices are worth the service.
