TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Jan. 30, 2014) - Beginning Monday February 3, 2014, Canadians can stop worrying about roaming fees and start enjoying travel more as today WIND Mobile announces its Unlimited U.S. Roaming add-on, that will give customers unlimited data, talk and text across the United States. WIND Mobile's Unlimited U.S. Roaming add-on will be available for only $15 per month and will offer subscribers complete piece of mind and worry-free travel, anywhere in the USA.

"With more and more Canadians visiting the United States for work or pleasure, we know how important it is for them to keep in touch with family and friends or take care of business back home," said Mirko Rugarli, Chief Marketing Officer, WIND Mobile. "This new add-on gives customers the freedom to stay connected to their world while travelling.
