Rogers Launches Flexible Rate Data Plans For iPad

by on December 22nd, 2010

With Bell and Virgin Mobile launching flexible data plans for iPad, Rogers didn’t want to be left out of the action. Effective tomorrow, Rogers is launching all new flexible data plans for iPad that are set to expire on January 7, 2011.

While the existing non-contracted Rogers iPad data options will remain, these new options provide customers with additional data choices. For reference, the existing iPad data plans are listed:

  • $15/month: 250MB
  • $35/month: 5GB
  • Exceeding any of the above data plans requires the re-purchase of a new data plan.

The new non-contract data offers are similar to the new recently released Virgin Mobile data plans. The two new plans are postpaid offers with flexible rate data:

  • $20.00/month ($21.96 in QC) Flex Data: 500MB (if data exceeds 500MB, the customer is automatically moved to the next data plan)
  • $35.00/month ($36.96 in QC) Flex Data: 5GB (if data exceeds 5GB, customer is charged $0.02 cents per additional MB)
  • Plan Code: DSPSRA0BI

What do you think? Are these offer better than the existing Rogers iPad Data Plans?

    now, if only Rogers would offer a REASONABLY priced data sharing option, to allow existing smartphone customers share the data they are ALREADY PAYING FOR with their iPad.

    say, something like a $5month add-on to any existing voice/data plan.

    oh, and I know it’s too much to ask for, but they should stop ripping us off with that 2nd “GRRF” (Greedy Rogers Ripoff Fee) attached to the sharing add-on

    Of course most people will go with the 5 GBs, 250 Mbs is not enough and they know this. Idiots! But then again they are the monopoly in this country and are allowed do whatever they bloody well please. It’s frustrating to say the least.

    What if we want to stay at $15? Since it’s not a contract, Rogers isn’t obligated to continue to offer this rate, are they? 250mb suits me just fine, most of my surfing is done through wifi and I only use 3G for light email reading and such. Average about 160mb/month
