“We were excited to be the first carrier to enable 5G roaming for U.S. customers in Japan back in 2020,” said Jenifer Robertson, executive vice president and general manager – AT&T Mobility. “With international travel ramping up, having reliable connectivity while abroad is more critical than ever. We want our customers to enjoy rich, unforgettable experiences while traveling – that’s why we’re thrilled to bring 5G access to 35+ destinations around the globe with more coming soon.”

Whether customers need to access the latest frequently changing COVID-19 regulations when entering a new country or need to be able to work remote during a ‘bleisure’ trip – the necessity for seamless connectivity while abroad has grown exponentially.

Here are a few more ways we help you travel seamlessly:

  • Traveling Outside of the U.S.? Use your phone like you do at home with International Day Pass. Get unlimited high-speed data, talk and text in over 210 destinations for $10/day. Plus, never pay for more than 10 days per line per bill. Additional lines used in the same 24-hour period can get 50% off. And only pay for the days you use. 2
  • Crossing the Borders in Mexico or Canada? You can use your eligible plan to get unlimited data, talk and text in and between the U.S., Mexico and Canada included at no extra charge. 3
  • Flying to your Next Destination? AT&T 5G+ using mmWave is delivering ultra-fast speeds at major domestic airports  across the country, with more than 20 planned by the end of the year. This 5G+ connection can help you make a smooth and clear video call, send that large file for work and let you download your content in a flash while boarding. Coverage can be found at gate and concession spaces, where travelers and airport employees have the greatest need. 
  • Setting Sail for Adventures at Sea? Stay connected while cruising on over 175 ships. Choose the plan that meets your needs for talk, text and data. A one-time charge gets you 30 days of use. No extra charges when you use your phone on land in Mexico, Canada and select Caribbean islands. 4
