SaskTel has also announced all existing wireless plans are going away and being replaced with new plans. Some plans will cost more; some will cost less. We'll see in a couple of days.

The foreign roaming rates are not all that attractive, but SaskTel's a la carte US roaming is now 7 cents/minute (unclear if toll is included) and 7 cents/MB for data. There are monthly packages that include larger amounts at lower prices, but these rates, for many users, will be perfectly adequate and will prevent having to pay $50 or more a month for a package that may not always be used. Certainly, 7 cents/MB will be cheap enough for my purposes.
