TORONTO, April 1 /CNW/ – Rogers Wireless is continuing to offer unique data solutions for its 8 million wireless customers. Available now, the new iPad Pay As You Go (PAYG) data plans are designed to help ensure the best value and pricing, that Rogers customers have known to expect.
“With Rogers 21 Mbps HSPA+ network, customers in Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal are the first in North America to experience the fastest world-class wireless speeds for their iPads. We continue to remain at the forefront of offering Canadians the most innovative mobile technologies and first-to-market products. Customers will be able to enjoy mobile Internet access of their Apple iPads across Canada’s fastest wireless network just as conveniently as you use your wireless phone,” said John Boynton, Chief Marketing Officer and Senior Vice President, Rogers Wireless.
New iPad PAYG Data Pricing is as follows, only from Rogers.com:
250MB for $75*
1GB for $35*

“You’ve been talking about us. We’ve been listening. And we’ve been learning about what you like – and don’t like – about our products and services and policies. We believe these are our most competitive data plans yet. We worked extremely hard on coming up with these PAYG data plans for the iPad. We’re really excited about how our customers will respond. They all have exceptional value, especially since three year contracts will ensure our customers their prices will remain the same,” said Billy Thorton, Senior Director of the Rogers RedBoard Blog Social Media Team.

Wow. I can’t believe Rogers released their mobile pricing so quickly. Since I will be getting an iPad soon, I will have no choice but to sign a 3 year contract and get the 6GB/$250 plan. I think it offers incredible value. What about you?
