Remaining in contact with your loved ones, colleagues and friends can become an issue while travelling abroad. In the previous era, contacting someone was rather difficult as the only mediums used for communication were regular mail and telephones. The Internet has taken over all the communications in the current decade and having a reliable Internet access is a must. Getting a steady and cost-effective Internet service can make life abroad easier.
Canada is a huge country (in terms of land) with limited developed cities. Public WiFi is readily available in the southern regions of Canada, especially around Toronto. It can be rather difficult to find public WiFi in cities that are in the northern region as public places offering WiFi facilities are limited in the region. For travelers, getting “free” WiFi can do wonders in terms of connecting with the rest of the world but remaining in one place to just use the Internet can be inconvenient. While travelling in the northern regions, finding public WiFi can be challenging and relying on a resource that is tough to search will be problematic.
Needless to say, even if a traveler can find public Internet in Internet cafes, libraries or restaurants, public WiFi does not necessarily provide the optimum Internet speed that can be attained through the private internet. The hotel WiFi can be easily accessible but it limits the access on the go.
Pros: Readily available in public places and can be accessed freely
Cons: Low speed; fast WiFi comes at a price, and personal data safety is not guaranteed
Before going with this option, get in touch with your mobile service provider to figure out what they offer. Most mobile providers have international partners and offer international roaming data plans. While they continue to come down in price, some of them can be rather expensive - to say the least.
Some providers offer fixed price data/phone/text packages, which could last for hours or days, depending on your usage. Some offer a flat daily rate for international use on top of regular domestic charges.
With limited amount of data, going over your data plan can happen fast. Every text or email can burn a hole in your pocket if you are roaming. Setting up a data plan with your home provider usually results in limiting your phone and internet usage or a very high phone bill.
Cons: Highly priced; potential overage charges; pre-paid options not always available
If you are looking for a hassle-free solution that is worth the money, opt for a global data SIM or a portable mobile WiFi hotspot.
