SSi Mobile customers in Northern Canada can now travel elsewhere in the North or in the south without paying additional roaming fees when they use their phones.
SSi Micro, the parent company of SSi Mobile, announced an agreement with Rogers Communications Inc. on Monday that will allow their customers to use their plan’s minutes and data while travelling within the country without being charged extra for roaming.
“As the only network operator with coverage in all 25 (Nunavut) communities, SSi Mobile is growing quickly in numbers and popularity with consumers,” said Jeff Philipp, founder and CEO of SSi. “This partnership with Rogers adds another level of excellence, ensuring the highest quality roaming connectivity across the country.”
Rogers consumer and business customers who previously roamed only in Iqaluit can now roam on the SSi Mobile network while travelling to all 25 Nunavut communities for the first time in the company’s history.
