proverbial buffalo (or bison to be more accurate),
Cellular Roaming allows mobile wireless customers to automatically
receive service when they are outside of the area covered by their
"home" provider's network. Mobile wireless service providers enter into
roaming agreements with each other so that their customers will be able
roam and receive service automatically, regardless of their location.
In 2011, the FCC adopted rules requiring facilities-based providers of
commercial mobile data services to offer Data Roaming arrangements to
other such providers on commercially reasonable terms and conditions,
subject to certain limitations. Also, while there are agreements
between carriers based in the US with those in foreign countries, those
agreements are not as favorable as they are within the US.
Roaming helps you
determine which wireless carriers
offer the best roaming capabilities for your wireless usage. Find
methods to use your wireless devices away from home and outside the
country without losing service or getting surprisingly high charges.
