Coverage in Colombia

I saw recently that roaming through South America is now covered with the elite unlimited plan

I am preparing for a trip to Southwest Columbia where the only coverage will be through the Claro network

Is that provider AT&t has a partnership with or should I plan on getting a local SIM card?

@sandblaster They started offering the new roaming with Elite at the end of April 2022.

You might want to double check that. Unlimited Elite was retired and replaced with Unlimited Premium. It is the Unlimited Premium plan that has extended free roaming to Columbia and other Latin American countries. If you still have Unlimited Elite, I’m not sure roaming will be free. In any event, if it is free, whatever carrier you connect to would be covered.

My Unlimited Elite Plan has roam Latin America as a feature. Just changed to this plan since my old Unlimited & More was going up in price. This was just before AT&T did away with the Unlimited Elite plan. Log in to your account and check.

AT&T wouldn't offer to cover all 19 Latin American countries if it didn't have an agreement with every carrier that provides coverage.

Safe travels!
