Earlier this month AT&T announced a roaming agreement that allows customers to use the Rogers 4G LTE network in Canada. Now, the company is spreading its wings across the pond with a similar agreement with EE.
EE announced on Tuesday that it’s now the first U.K. operator to allow 4G LTE roaming, and travelers who are AT&T customers will automatically hitch on to the carrier’s network when they land in an EE LTE market. The company’s LTE footprint is expanding rapidly, it’s the largest in the U.K. right now, and the carrier says it hopes to offer coverage in more than 160 towns by Christmas with average download speeds floating between 24Mbps and 30Mbps.
As with AT&T’s roaming agreement with Rogers, you’ll need to pay extra to roam internationally. Unlike T-Mobile, which offers free roaming on non-LTE networks outside of the United States, AT&T subscribers need to pay for a global roaming package. The carrier’s options start with a 120MB package for $30, and it also has a 300MB monthly option for $60 or an 800MB plan for $120.
