Rogers: 2.3M Roam Like Home Sign Ups, New Asia/Oceania Expansion
Today, Rogers announced that Asia and Oceania are joining the growing list of more than 100 destinations worldwide that are a part of their Roam Like Home program.
Rogers Share Everything customers can now roam internationally in Asia and Oceania for $10 per day. Executive Vice-President Wireless Services at Rogers Raj Doshi said:
“We know our customers love the freedom of using their plan wherever they are, just like they do at home. We’ve heard them and we’ve invested in Roam Like Home™ to add more and more destinations to the plan. Now they won’t have to think twice before posting a selfie from the Sydney Opera House or searching for a restaurant in Tokyo.”
According to a recent study, 95 percent of almost two million Canadians that travel to Asia bring their smartphone with them on their trip. Those traveling to Asia are also 33 percent more likely to access the Internet on their device while on their trip.
Rogers customers will pay only $10 per day when roaming within an eligible international destination and will only be charged for a maximum of 10 days on each monthly bill or a maximum of $100. If you are traveling to the United States, you will only pay $5 per day when roaming and you will only be charged up to a maximum of $50.
Existing Share Everything customers can enrol in the Roam Like Home program by texting “travel” to 222 (free of charge) before they leave or once they reach one of over 100 eligible destination. New Share Everything customers will be automatically enrolled to the program.
