AT&T Customers Can Now Enjoy 4G LTE Roaming In Canada Thanks To New Agreement With Rogers

Today AT&T announced an agreement with Canadian wireless carrier Rogers that will enable its customers to have access to 4G LTE data speeds even when on the northern side of the border. This arrangement makes AT&T the first American carrier to offer international LTE roaming, but before some of you get too excited, know that this luxury still doesn't come cheaply.

AT&T customers can roam internationally by selecting a Data Global Add-On package, the same ones needed to access 3G. These offer 120MB of data for $30 a month, 300MB for $60 a month, or 800MB for $120 a month. Without a package, you're looking at paying $15.36 per megabyte.

Straight Talk Prepaid Service Now Compatible With AT&T LTE [Update: New SIM Required]

There was a time not long ago that you couldn't even get AT&T-compatible Straight Talk SIMs due to a mysterious shortage. Well, things have certainly turned around. Straight Talk has just started listing 4G LTE service for AT&T devices. You can break free from the traditional carriers, save some money, and still keep your LTE data. That's a deal.

2013-09-13 11_52_59-Choose Your SIM card

Straight Talk offers monthly plans starting at $45 with "unlimited" data. Straight Talk will throttle heavy users after a few gigabytes of data, but the price isn't bad. AT&T's Aio national prepaid service is slightly more pricey. There is no additional charge for LTE data – the SIM cards should just work.

Sprint Introduces 4G LTE Availability To 41 New Markets, Brings Nationwide Coverage Up To 151 Total

Think of Sprint as the Little Engine That Could. It's tinkered with 4G perhaps longer than any of America's other major carriers, but it has little to show for it. There are large swaths of the country that don't have LTE coverage and the speeds aren't necessarily that fast in the areas that do. Still, those of us on Sprint's network must hold on to hope. The company is hard at work, and today they've announced the availability of 4G LTE in 41 new markets. Faster Sprint service is now available in both Brooklyn and the Bronx, along with Philadelphia, Portland, Daytona Beach, and Jacksonville.
