Today, Wind Mobile launched a new $39 monthly plan that offers unlimited 3G data in both Canada and the United States.
Currently, Wind is the only Canadian carrier that is offering unlimited data roaming in the U.S. at no extra charge. Rogers is currently charging customers $5 per day to use their regular monthly allowance of minutes, data, and text while roaming in the United States.
The advantage of Rogers’ add-on is you are able to connect at LTE speeds in areas that support it. With Wind Mobile’s new plan users will be limited to 3G speeds even in areas where LTE is available.
The new $39 per month plan will be available until March 31. In addition to unlimited data in Canada and the U.S., the plan also offers unlimited Canada-wide calling, unlimited Canada-wide SMS and MMS. Users who are traveling state side will not have unlimited calling, however the carrier will give you 2,400 minutes of talk time.
Wind notes that the new Wind 39 plan may not be combined with the “bring your own phone” offer, which means no extra credits. Before jumping at this deal, be sure to ask the carrier if it will work in your situation.
