    Pretty much all of Europe is unlimited, Latin America, Asia is super dirt cheap. Just a reminder that having a cell plan in Canada and needing to use data still sucks!

    In USA at the moment. Wifi in RV, Spectrum 500Mbps internet $35 US/month includes one unlimited cell line unlimited text, talk, data(20GB anyway) LTE/5G.

    BUT I do like my CDN Public Mobile for $20 CDn for unlimited talk text, and some data.

    I just checked them out. At the moment, they had a $15, $25 and $35 a month plan on the 3G Speed.

    Amazingly, on the $15 plan, "Unlimited Incoming Calls" which is the way it should be for any Canadian carrier. Why would I pay for some incoming call trying to sell me something?

    In any case, still a long way for this 3rd world country in comparison to EU and Oz rates.

    Well Very discouraged by Spectrum mobile. 2 different 5G capable phones and an iphone se 2nd gen and they all give me unlimited .1-.4 Mbps. What a joke with Spectrum!
    Techie after more than one call/chat said well we are here to see you have access not speed! Last one and then he killed chat!

    Not a very diplomatic response, but true. The Canadian tech has no direct control of your data connection speed on the US network.
