Just in case anyone is wondering, my trip to the U.S. cost $49 instead of the $40 it would have with the old package. Too bad someone said that they were gone before others figured out you could add it on by calling.
Just Glassin' but there's little comparison because the new options allow greater freedom compared to the tiny data buckets which were previously available. We burned through the roaming package we got last time in under a week. If we took the same trip yes it would have cost us a little more but we'd have our entire plan data bucket available (8gb).
