Rogers Launches New iPad Data Sharing Options

by on November 4th, 2010

For the Holiday 2010 quarter, Rogers has launched a set of new data sharing options for iPad.

The original Rogers data-only iPad plans are still available and for reference, they are listed below:

  • $15/month: 250MB (auto-renewal every 30 days)
  • $35/month: 5GB (auto-renewal every 30 days)

As many are aware, these iPad data plans have no contract, are essentially pay-as-you-go data options, and everything is done right on the iPad.

The new data sharing options however come in two forms: a Voice Plan with Shareable Data or a Data Sharing Add-On.

1.) Voice Shareable Data Packages

If you are looking to start new service with Rogers on a smartphone or are an existing customer with a smartphone who wants to have a voice/data sharing bundle, then you have three packages to choose from:

$55 Package (plus 2.43 GRRF in BC/AB/ON)

  • Minutes: 200 daytime minutes
  • Evenings/Weekends: Unlimited weekends; Evenings from 9PM – 7AM
  • Choice of One Feature: Unlimited Messages or My5 Canada-wide or Unlimited Local Network Calling or 6PM Early Evening Calling or Double Your Minutes
  • Data Included: 1GB
  • Contract: 3 Years

$65 Package (plus 2.43 GRRF in BC/AB/ON)

  • Monthly fee: $65
  • Minutes: 300 daytime minutes
  • Evenings/Weekends: Unlimited weekends; Evenings from 9PM – 7AM
  • Choice of One Feature: Unlimited Messages or My5 Canada-wide or Unlimited Local Network Calling or 6PM Early Evening Calling or Double Your Minutes
  • Data Included: 1GB
  • Contract: 3 Years

$70 Package (plus 2.43 GRRF in BC/AB/ON)

  • Monthly fee: $70
  • Minutes: 500 daytime minutes
  • Evenings/Weekends: Unlimited weekends; Evenings from 9PM – 7AM
  • Choice of One Feature: Unlimited Messages or My5 Canada-wide or Unlimited Local Network Calling or 6PM Early Evening Calling or Double Your Minutes
  • Data Include: 1GB
  • Contract: 3 Years

Each of the three above plans provides service for one smartphone.

After you have a plan chosen, you can share that 1GB data plan with your iPad by adding $15.00 (plus $1.96 GRRF) to the existing plan price. Note that this $15.00 extra can be removed at any time.

The second option is a Data Sharing Add-On:

2.) Smartphone Data Share Plans

If you are already with Rogers and are satisfied with your existing smartphone voice plan, then you have three data sharing add-on options:

$30 Data Sharing Add-On

  • Monthly fee: $30
  • Data Include: 1GB
  • Contract: 3 Years

$45 Data Sharing Add-On

  • Monthly fee: $45
  • Data Include: 2GB
  • Contract: 3 Years

$60 Data Sharing Add-On

  • Monthly fee: $60
  • Data Include: 5GB
  • Contract: 3 Years

In other words, any of the above three plans can be added to your existing smartphone voice plan to provide service to one smartphone.

After you have a data add-on chosen, you can share that data amount with your iPad by adding $15.00 (plus $1.96 GRRF) to the existing plan price. Note that this $15.00 extra can be removed at any time.

Overall, these are not the greatest value options available, but we are talking about Rogers after all.
