Videotron reduces roaming rates, unveils a $79/month Unlimited plan for business with 30GB data

The Quebec-based carrier has reduced U.S. data from $0.40/MB to only $0.15/MB and ensures its 500,000 customers that they’ll only be charges for what they actually use. Videotron also unveiled an unlimited U.S. text plan for $10/month. As for Europe, the data roaming has been cut from $1/MB to $0.60/MB. Caribbean data roaming has been slashed by 50% to $1/MB and $0.60 per minute for calls.
