Data usb modems are available. Unfortunately you will need two--one for Canada and one for USA.
Millenicom is the "best bang for the buck" in USA. 20 gigs for a no contract device is $60.00 plus the cost of the modem. Make sure to get the Verizon version.
Virgin Canada sells a prepaid usb modem which can be "reloaded" if need be. Skype video would cut into so called "data bucket" fairly quickly. Virgin "piggybacks" on the Bell system.
Hi pianotuna, the most important thing is checking my emails, I can do without
skype video calling but thought it might be good for booking rv parks in advance as the calls are so cheap. would I be better to buy a phone and sim instead for calls?
I think we have talked ourselves out of Canada, if the USA trip goes okay may do Canada the following year if monies allow!
Your comments are always useful, so thanks, Julie
