[Bell Canada cuts rates for customers who travel outside the country.]
Montreal -- Bell today announced it is reducing the prices of its most popular consumer rate plans for United States mobile data, voice and text roaming by 50%, part of the company's focus on lowering costs for customers who use their mobile phones while travelling outside Canada.
"During the summer, Canadians told the federal government that they support wireless competition and strongly believe the wireless rules should be the same for all carriers, Canadian or international. But Canadians also told us that they want to use their smartphones a lot when they travel, and they want the price to come down. We heard you and today Bell is cutting in half the cost of mobile roaming where Canadians travel the most: the USA," said Wade Oosterman, President of Bell Mobility. "We're starting with the most popular destination, and Bell is committed to working with our global telecom partners to further reduce international roaming costs for our customers."
Effective tomorrow, these US roaming cost reductions benefit both existing Bell customers and new customers. You can sign up before you travel, but Bell also texts customers who take their phones to the US to let them know they can easily sign up for a low-cost US travel plan while on the go. When traveling in the US, customers can choose the plans from Bell self serve on their smartphones or by calling 1-800-667-ROAM (7626).
