Need more data while roaming in USA


I signed up for the 30ALL roaming package for travel to the USA (unlimited mins, text and 750 MB data). I blew through the data in 2 weeks and need more. It won't let me do 30ALL again because I'm still within the 1 month period. How do I get more data in the US without getting billed $5 every 20 MB??

Hi Andy,

Your only option would be to add a different add-on to your account. you could add the 10ALL option that allows for 250mb of data at a cost of 40$ for 10 days. 
Damn that sucks.
The solution I found was to buy a pre-paid sim card in the states. 1 month unlimited talk, text and 5GB data for $70 USD. Would have preferred not to have gone to this hassle, but Koodo's plans and add ons left me with no option.

Most carrier's roaming plans are relatively costly and designed for light use only since they are buying the service from another provider. With the local SIM, you are probably paying less than you would for the same service back home and avoid the hassles of connecting with roaming partners.
