Verizon Wireless is prepared to offer customers a new international roaming package called TravelPass. Verizon customers will be able to access their existing talk, text, and data buckets when roaming in 65 different countries for $10 per 24-hour period. Roaming in Canada and Mexico will cost $2 per day. Customers will only be charged for the service when abroad and actively using their phone in other countries. "Unlike other providers, Verizon doesn't use gimmicks like 'free data roaming' to lure you in and then put you on the slowest network and restrict your data use while outside of the U.S.," said Verizon in a statement. Verizon still offers a $40 package for those who plan to roam for longer periods of time. High-speed data service is included, though customers will need a world phone in order to roam. Verizon's new offering follows moves by competitors AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile, which have taken steps to reduce the pain of traveling abroad.

This just shows how Verizon is milking their customers. $10 for 24 hours of roaming. Would rather suggest using Skype or Viber over WiFi. Cost $0. Goodluck with that.
