Public Mobile today announced it has expanded its roaming coverage to the United States.

The company's U.S. roaming rates will be the same as in Canada, 15 cents a minute to send or receive a call. Incoming texts are free and outgoing texts are 15-cents.

Public Mobile’s U.S. roaming partner is Sprint. Public Mobile’s roaming service extends across the Continental U.S. and includes Hawaii, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Only Alaska and Montana are not included.

To use roaming, Public Mobile customers must first deposit money into their virtual wallet.

Since I spend a fair amount of time in the US each year, I follow announcements like these because my wireless provider, Rogers, has embarrassing offerings compared to this.

I think this is the best reason why competition in this market is so badly needed in our country. I hope this forces the hand of major carriers to lower the ridiculous amounts being charged for roaming, both voice and data.
