Hi, I'm travelling from Calgary to Kelowna and have the no-tab $40 plan which is Canadawide and all.  I want to know if there is roaming DATA charges.  Everything I see says no for phone calls, but I want to know for data usage.

Hi Matt,

As long as you remain in Canada you can use all of your plan anywhere in the country!

Be careful in locations near the USA border. Devices have been known to cross borders electronically but without physically leaving the country. Make sure you turn off roaming on your device and also in your account if necessary. Unexpected roaming charges add up extremely quickly.

An even better thing to do in border towns is to do a manual network selection. This way your phone will only connect to the Koodo network instead of automatically selecting the one with the best strength.
