From the Rogers web site:
- Data usage is measured in the Kilobytes transmitted over the Rogers Wireless data network with usage rounded to the next full KB. 1MB = 1,024KB 1GB = 1,024 MB
- U.S. roaming is $0.006 per KB and international roaming is $0.03 per KB when you subscribe to a Data plan. If you subscribe to a Flex rate data plan, the U. S. roaming is $3 per MB and international roaming is $0.03 per KB". If you subscribe to unlimited on-device browsing rate, both the U. S. roaming and international roaming is $0.03 per KB.
That makes US roaming $6 / MB on a regular data plan, not bad for text-only emails. But don't do much web browsing or use mapping apps that download map data or you'll run up a horrendous bill. Fortunately, BIS won't pump out email attachments without your OK.
When I go to the US, I go into my email options (OS 4.6) and turn off HTML and turn off "download images automatically". In that state, 1MB is a lot of emails.
