The last time I traveled outside the country, I went to Paris. I looked into getting cell phone service, but decided against it.
During that trip, I was always on the lookout for signs that said free Wi-Fi.

On my recent trip to Niagara Falls and Toronto, Canada, I decided to look into upgrading my cell phone service so I could upload photos and videos from anywhere.
I've got an AT&T contract so I went online and determined that I could add 300MB Updated to my plan.
I determine this amount by taking my previous months total data usage, which I could look up on my phone app, and divided by a for giving me a weekly total of around 300 MB.

I was doing pretty well up until the very end of the week when I exceeded the 300MB by just a little bit.
Upgrading your cell phone's data plan is a great idea before taking it with you outside the country.
