Mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) FreedomPop has decided to team up with Dish Mexico in order to start providing free wireless services in Mexico. If this partnership proves to be a successful model, the carrier is looking to replicate its success in other mobile markets as well. Dish Mexico is owned by Dish and MVS Comunicaciones and is game in collaborating with FreedomPop in bringing free voice calls, text messaging and data access to Mexican mobile users.
AT&T has just revealed that it has added new Mexico and Canada roaming services for subscribers on some of its existing smartphone plans. Those who are subscribed under the AT&T Unlimited Plan, they can expect to be able to soon enjoy their plan’s voice calls, text messaging, and data inclusions in and between Mexico, Canada, and the United States, absolutely free of roaming fees.
Customers of MetroPCS, a prepaid subsidiary of major US wireless carrier T-Mobile, can already make use of their mobile devices just like home when visiting the country of Mexico.

As the competition in wireless plans continues to heat up, the pricing gets cheaper by the minute. And this is not only becoming true for domestic wireless plans, but also for rates of international wireless services, as more and more carriers start to offer better roaming prices.
Sprint is the latest to join the club. The wireless carrier recently introduced brand new international roaming deals for mobile users who frequently find themselves travelling all across the North And South American continents.
T-Mobile recently announced a new expansion of its existing Simple Choice plans. Called Mobile Without Borders, this new feature allows subscribers to use their mobile devices while in Canada and Mexico.
