Telcel extends free roaming in the US to prepaid customers

Monday 17 August 2015 | 08:56 CET | News
Mexican operator Telcell has removed roaming charges on calls and data in the US for around 40 million of its prepaid customers. Calls in the US by customers of the Amigo Optimo and Optimo Plus plans will now be charged according to local rates. The same applies when using mobile data in the US. In addition they will no longer pay long-distance fees for calls from Mexico to the US. Telcel earlier launched 'roam like home' rates on certain postpaid plans under its 'Telcel Sin Frontera' offer.
