Rogers to offer 50 MB US Roaming data plan

Other Rogers news yesterday involved the introduction of a new Roaming data plan for visitors to the U.S. Starting in the spring, you can purchase 50 MB of data for use while you are in the U.S. for $7.99. This data has to be used within a 24 hour period. According to Rogers this will be enough to “view approximately 50 maps, 200 web pages, 1,000 emails or over 5,000 tweets”. This seems like a hefty price to pay to access only 50 MB of data. For people with unlocked devices there are many other cheaper options which usually involve exchanging your SIM card with a pre-paid one specific for the country your are visiting.
