What is Data Roaming?
You’ve probably heard the words data roaming used when talking about traveling abroad. Data roaming is when your smartphone leaves your carrier’s coverage and is no longer connected to your traditional home network. Your wireless provider has agreements with specific networks to ensure service throughout Canada. Still, that coverage isn’t available when you travel abroad. Simply put, roaming is when your mobile phone connects to a network not part of your original contract. Pacific CoastCom has partnered with TELUS and Koodo wireless to offer data roaming plans.
Travel Made Easier with TELUS Mobile Roaming Plans
Traveling is full of possible issues, but your mobile phone shouldn’t be one of them. When considering traveling outside Canada, look into TELUS roaming plans to avoid unexpected charges. We want to make your travel as easy as possible while you stay connected for less. TELUS offers multiple plans designed to fit your needs and budget. You can access exclusive services and benefits when utilizing the easy roam plan. Some benefits include access to nurses if traveling in the U.S. and discounts on vacation packages.
TELUS wireless offers two romancing plans, and they have:
- Easy Roam – With this plan, you get unlimited talk and text while receiving the same amount of mobile data you get monthly with your standard plan. Easy roam’s costs depend on your destination. If you’re heading to the U.S., it’s $12 a day, but to over 200 international destinations, it’s $15 a day.
- Pay-Per-Use – As stated by the name, it costs to make phone calls, text, and data. It’s $0.75 per text, $1.60 per minute of a phone call, and $5.00 per MB of data.

As a bonus, you’ll gain access to registered nurses 24/7 via phone while using their easy roam plan.
Here is a look at the cost of Koodo’s easy roam plan:
