Telecom Announces Best Data Roaming Rates in HK and Canada

Telecom Announces Best Data Roaming Rates in Hong Kong and Canada

Telecom has extended its 100MB for $100 data roaming deal to two more countries so XT customers roaming in Hong Kong and Canada will now receive best data roaming rates in the market.

The standard data roaming rate in Hong Kong has plunged by almost 70% from $25 per MB to $8 per MB, and the Canadian standard data roaming rate by 20% from $10 per MB to $8 per MB, and the cost will be capped at $100 for up to 100MB.

Chief Marketing Officer of Telecom Retail, Kieren Cooney, says this announcement follows shortly after Telecom launched the same rates in Australia, United States and the United Kingdom.

“By offering great value data roaming rates in five of the main destinations New Zealanders visit, we’re ensuring customers can travel between countries with consistent pricing and have cost certainty around their bill when they return home.”

“Our 100MB data cap means customers who use up 100 MB will essentially be paying $1 per MB,” Cooney says.
