AT&T Adds Unlimited Roaming in Latin America to Their Unlimited Elite Plans

Tech is cyclical in many ways. We went from unlimited data and measured call minutes and texts to unlimited calling and texts and metered data to unlimited everything. And now AT&T is spreading the unlimited love beyond the USA borders to include roaming in Central and South America!

If you regularly travel out of the country, you’re familiar with the dreaded roaming charges.

However, if you’re an AT&T Unlimited Elite plan user, as of May 3rd, you’ll be getting free talk, text, and high-speed data in 19 Latin American countries at no extra charge. The countries include:

Central America

  • Belize
  • Costa Rica
  • El Salvador
  • Guatemala
  • Honduras
  • Nicaragua
  • Panama

South America

  • Argentina
  • Bolivia
  • Brazil
  • Chile
  • Columbia
  • Ecuador
  • Guyana
  • Paraguay
  • Peru
  • Suriname
  • Uraguay
  • Venezuela

AT&T Adds Unlimited Roaming in Latin America to Their Unlimited Elite Plans

If you’re not super familiar with the various tiers of AT&T’s unlimited plans, this means that Unlimited Elite (and Business Unlimited Elite) customers will be able to access unlimited international roaming in the above-mentioned countries (Mexico and Canada were already included), 50 GB priority data, 40GB of hotspot data, and free HBO Max.

Really, what’s better than knowing you can be cruising through the Panama Canal while streaming Our Flag Means Death?

AT&T is giving fun benefits to people who aren’t on the Unlimited Elite packages as well. They’re consolidating their security apps, AT&T Mobile Security and AT&T Call Protect, into AT&T ActiveArmor.

AT&T Active Armor not only sounds cooler, but it will help prevent spam calls, monitor for data breaches, and keep other threats from invading your phone. Everyone gets the basic access, and if you’re an Unlimited Elite (or Business Unlimited Elite, they didn’t forget you), you get the full package included for free.

Every mobile carrier is coming up with new ways to offer added value for their customers, but if you’re a regular traveler, you should definitely consider AT&T’s new perks at the Unlimited Elite level — including unlimited roaming in Latin America!

  1. Savings that are always welcome, and their Active Armor is welcome also!

  2. This plan is a very good one. The roaming charges have always been problematic from the inception of mobile phones. It will always come down to the quality of service, the number of perks, options and cost.
