On Monday Mobile Syrup posted about a new reciprocal LTE roaming agreement
between AT&T and Rogers. There's a thread about it here on the forums
, with one member specifically calling out "Canada's fantastic LTE networks".
Thanks, we pay through the nose for them. But I digress...
Not to single Mobile Syrup out, but if you search their site for the phrase "roaming agreement" you'll get a whopping 7 pages of results
. Some items are mildly interesting — it's nice to know, for example, that I could get my Rogers 2600MHz LTE hotspot unlocked and use it on 3 in Hong Kong
. But for the most part, I don't really see this type of thing as news at all.
Do we chalk it up to the insatiable appetite of the tech press, or do people not realize that there are other available options? I expect
my phone to roam on other networks, but the only time I really need it is for that hopefully short block of time between when I arrive in another city and when I can get to a carrier shop for a local SIM card.
