What is Roaming?

Like the proverbial buffalo (or bison to be more accurate), Cellular Roaming allows mobile wireless customers to automatically receive service when they are outside of the area covered by their "home" provider's network. Mobile wireless service providers enter into roaming agreements with each other so that their customers will be able roam and receive service automatically, regardless of their location. The FCC has recognized the importance of roaming for mobile consumers and requires mobile wireless service operators to provide automatic voice roaming.

In 2011, the FCC adopted rules requiring facilities-based providers of commercial mobile data services to offer Data Roaming arrangements to other such providers on commercially reasonable terms and conditions, subject to certain limitations. Also, while there are agreements between carriers based in the US with those in foreign countries, those agreements are not as favorable as they are within the US.


The Roaming Zone helps you determine which wireless carriers offer the best roaming capabilities for your wireless usage. Find methods to use your wireless devices away from home and outside the country without losing service or getting surprisingly high charges.
