Telus Easy Roam Expands to Cuba and 13 Other Destinations


Telus has announced their Easy Roam coverage has expanded to Cuba, which makes them the “only Canadian carrier to currently offer affordable roaming rates and roaming experience to customers” travelling to the country (Cuba’s operator dropped Rogers from the country last year after Roam Like Home overwhelmed networks).

    Why Telus charges $150 max and Rogers $100? Plus, with Telus, you have to active easy roam yourself before you go, not Rogers where its automatically applied.

    Telus gives you the choice to use Easy Roam or buy Roaming packages of minutes, texts and data, so somewhere or other you need to make a choice, thus the need to activate one option of the other. Having chosen Easy Roam once, you need not choose it again.

    Canada is totally ridiculous with its pricing. I just moved to the US and I have Unlimited (well, 22gigs then it gets throttled) data, talk and texting within USA/Canada and mexico, and I pay $65/month. Oh, and now they give free HBO as of tomorrow. Get with the times canada!

  • Free HBO?! ????

    There are more differences than that. But Telus now has far more countries than Rogers, which is a shame. Rogers needs to catch up their list, they have not added any in a long time.

    Agree. Canadian carriers can also do something similar. Or – they may as well not have their throttling and traffic prioritization story implemented.
