Not surprisingly, the plummeting Canadian dollar is really starting to hurt Canadians in our maple syrup-flavored wallets. Groceries at the supermarket have gone up in price; I’ve heard reports of cauliflower going for over $10 a head in some parts of the country. Apps in the app store have gone up in price. And now, yes, even if you do decide to travel south of the border to visit our friends in the States, the price for your Roam Mobility plans has also gone up.

By and large, we’ve been very happy with the Roam Mobility service over the last two and a half years that we’ve been using it. Roam makes it affordable and convenient for Canadians to stay connected while traveling through the United States and Mexico and despite these recent price increases, it’s still relatively cheaper than any roaming option you can get from the Big Three.

If you were to visit the USA daily plan page on Roam’s website, you might notice that each of the daily plans has gone up a dollar a day. Whereas the text and data plan was once $1.95, it’s now $2.95 per day. The talk, text and data plan has gone up from $3.95 to $4.95 per day, though the daily allotment of 4G LTE data has also received a bump from 400MB to 500MB. And yes, you still get free calls back to Canada too.

Roam Mobility Plans Go Up a Buck Each, Blame Weak CAD

On the plus side, if you’re heading to the Big Apple to check out Snowpacalypse, over to Hawaii to soak in some rays, or down to the Bay Area for Super Bowl 50 in a couple weeks, you can still take advantage of the $1/day special rate after 14 days on any plan. Similarly, there have also been some other adjustments to the other Roam Mobility plans too. Data only plans are $2 more, bumping the 300MB, 500MB and 1GB plans to $9.95, $16.95 and $21.95, respectively.

At least we can still get our refurbished MacBooks and Nexus smartphones for less than our American counterparts for the time being, right?
