AT&T Mobility is letting its Mobile Share Value customers roam freely when in Mexico and is also giving those subscribers extra data to use when south of the border. The offering is the latest salvo between the U.S. carriers as they try to offer better international roaming and data usage plans, especially for customers traveling to Mexico and Canada.
Starting this month, AT&T said that with its new “AT&T Mexico Roaming Bonus” offering, Mobile Share Value consumer and business customers can add the feature for free. Customers who do so will receive unlimited texting to anywhere in the world and unlimited voice calling within Mexico and from Mexico to the United States. Additionally, customers will get 1 GB of data to use while in Mexico for free (with overage charges of $20 per GB).
AT&T is trying to make its networks as seamless as possible between Mexico and the United States. After spending $4.4 billion to purchase Mexican wireless operators Iusacell and Nextel Mexico earlier this year, AT&T this summer promised to spend $3 billion to cover 100 million people in Mexico with LTE by the end of 2018. AT&T has said it is creating the
“first-ever North American Mobile Service Area covering 400 million people and businesses in Mexico and the U.S.”

We decided to feature this unbelievable shot that Abelardo de la Torre submitted to the National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest. Sixteen thousand aluminum tiles coat the exterior of the Soumaya Museum in Mexico City. Housing the collection of Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim, the museum was designed by Slim’s son-in-law, Mexican architect Fernando Romero. The museum features the works of many famous artists including Auguste Rodin, Claude Monet, Vincent Van Gogh, Henri Matisse, and Salvador Dali. The photographer describes the museum as “one of the most beautiful buildings in the city.”
