Doubled the data on new U.S. Travel Packs – customers can use devices
without fear of paying more than they expect

TORONTO, Nov. 14, 2013 /CNW/ – Rogers Communications, Canada’s leading
diversified communications and media company, today announced the
launch of its new U.S. Travel Packs that make roaming even easier and
more affordable for customers. These monthly packs offer more of what
customers want including double the data, additional minutes, and
unlimited texts at lower prices – just in time for the busy holiday
travel season.

Customers now have access to a variety of U.S. roaming offers, including
four new Travel Packs and the $7.99 per day U.S. roaming wireless data
and Internet rate. All offers deliver more value, as part of the
company’s ongoing commitment to improve customers’ roaming experiences
and offer better cost certainty.

“Our simplified Travel Pack line-up enables our customers to roam with
confidence and use their devices when they are south of the border just
as they would at home – without worrying about paying more than
expected,” said Raj Doshi, senior vice president, product, Rogers
Communications. “We’ve reduced prices and delivered more value in our
U.S. Travel Packs to ensure customers continue to stay connected with
