[Amazon Canada] US/Cda Travel SIMs - Prepaid with Large Data buckets, unl calling

Amazon Cda has recently started selling preloaded travel SIMs. Some are Cda/US and others also include Mexico.

example - these all include 22GB 4G speed and unlimited data throttled speed after that, unl mins to/from Cda/US/Mex, unl SMS, and are Prime eligible and all seem to charge no tax.
10 days - $30.11
21 days $43.20
30 days $62.07
https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B07RHR ... X7JZ&psc=1

There was another plan that was data only, unlimited LTE all the way no throttling, but no phone minutes and no SMS. This uses Bell in Cda. I am going to test this one out to see if I can replace my xPloreNet
7 days - $24.44
10 days #28.99 (See post 82 for my review on this plan)

Awesome deal. I have used the T-Mobile tourist plan in the past. It is for 21 days, but only includes a sad 2GB for $30 USD. Pretty much the same price for 11X the amount of data.

But it's no longer useful for me as I added US roaming on Videotron for $1/month. But this is a great deal for those on other carriers that charge $7/day to use your own data.

I have purchased the 2nd link - unlimited LTE data only plan. 10 days for $28.99. This one is a Plug'n'Go and requires no registration or activation (auto-activate). My plan is to put into an unlocked Huawei Hub that I have and see how it goes. Should have it either tomorrow or Friday.

Could be a good cottage internet source if it works

Really hope someday US carriers can operate in Canada and we can see the real completion and save the money.

That day has already arrived if you read the separate AT&T thread on the US plan from Walmart. Need to pick it up in the US and have a US telephone # but it works in Canada. US$40 for 25gb with unlimited talk/text.

Thanks OP, will order one. Anyone know for the unlimited LTE (no sms no voice), which is a plug n go, will this sim ever expire? Let's say I only plan a Trip to the states in January. Will it still work then ?

The SIM expires after either 7 or 10 days (depending on which one you buy) after inserting it into your phone.

Let us know how it goes. I could see myself buying this when I go camping.

There's a slightly more expensive TMobile option that includes 3G hotspot service along with unlimited 4G non-hotspot data.
I think the T-Mobile plan only works in the States.

It's super easy for them. Many plans in the USA blocks tethering and they have been very good at it. As for video streaming,they can simply block the major ones. No net neutrality in the USA.

No video streaming apparently if you read the product description.
