Rogers to launch new Data Plans on Oct. 1st

September 3, 2008 | By | Add a Comment

As of October 1st Rogers Wireless will introduce new data plans to replace their crazy 6GB for $30 a month. A recent study by Rogers indicates that 95% of iPhone 3G users use less than 500MB of data every month. Becuase of this Rogers will introduce new data plans as follows:

$15 – 2MB
$25 – 500 MB
$30 – 1GB
$60 – 3GB
$80 – 8GB

A few interesting notes about these new packages: All new clients will receive 3 months of “Freedom of Data” allowing unlimited usage for the first three months to see which data plan they really need. Also all of these new plans include tethering, Clients will be notified by SMS when they have used all of their available data, Overages are now capped at $100/month so no one will get any crazy phone bills.

So we recommend that you pick up Rogers current $30 a month for 6GB on data with your new BlackBerry Bold!!
