Bird talk - Le Jaseur
Dear Bird Talk,

I see there has been a lot of discussion about many different cellular plans, and I thought I might weigh in a little with my personal experiences. I have a secondary property in Las Vegas and travel there occasionally throughout the year. I have tried adding U.S. travel pack plans Via FIDO and found it was getting expensive and I used almost all of my data all of the time. I did try the Roam mobility plan as well and found it OK but, again, slightly expensive. I also tried keeping a local Las Vegas cellular active on U.S. Virgin, as well as on AT&T, and found that to be a pain too. Most recently, I have signed onto the WIND mobile Unlimited USA data/roaming plan and actually really like it. It costs $40/month, but it works excellently and it is very easy to maintain with their online account access. WIND is fairly new to Western Canada and its local towers are few, but the unlimited U.S. features...it is truly a great deal. Thank you for allowing me to share my personal experiences.
