Pre-paid data card

Hi all,

We will be travelling to banff, seattle, fairbanks and vancouver for 3 weeks.

Would like to find out if we can buy a pre-paid data card which we are able to use at these 4 places and if yes, what are the recommended telcos and price plans like?

Will we be able to get it from Calgary airport?

Thanks!!

The Top Questions on the Canada Forum contain this traveller article:

Seattle and Fairbanks are in the US, you will need to check what Americans use for SIM cards by asking on one of those forums.

Canada is renowned for having some of the world's most expensive mobile service. The main mobile providers here in western Canada are Telus Mobility, Rogers and Bell Mobility - you'll be able to google up their sites for more info on their offerings. Note that there are "dead spots" in mountainous areas with no service.
