Why so expensive in Canada/Mexico?

GCI in Alaska offers included roaming voice in Canada and Mexico with their nationwide plan. Roaming data is included with a data plan in these countries as well, and 3G roaming in much of Canada. Why can't AT&T do the same?

Good point. Greed? That's a good differentiator for them, given that AT&T has a better network in Alaska.

It's not cheap to maintain thousands of miles of undersea fiber cabling. It's not like GCI is raking in the dough, they've only had modest earnings the last several years.
