Back when there was Frontier Tel, and Genesee Tel, in the Rochester NY area.
I had a mobile cell phone in the van. I was near edge of Lake Ontario, and
the pager went off. I called the answering people, on roam. And then the
customer. Turns out my cell was working towers in Toronto, Canada, and it
was costing me two bucks a minute for roam.

I know at one time on lake Erie I connected through a Canadian cell site
using AT&T system, 50 miles away. Never got billed, back in mid 90's. I
think I may have got billed another time, that's how I found where I
connected through. The reception was real weak on near shore stations, but
10 miles into the water, reception was great with stronger towers visible.
Why am I talking about cell phones.
