$7.99 U.S. wireless data and Internet roaming rate offers up to 50 MB of data 
per day and is ideal for consumers and small business customers that are 
travelling for shorter periods of time. Customers who elect not to purchase 
a U.S. Travel Pack will automatically take advantage of the $7.99 per day

To keep customers connected at fast network speeds while travelling, Rogers 
was the first Canadian carrier to offer LTE roaming in the U.S., as well as in 
Switzerland, France, Hong Kong and South Korea.
