Well, well, well, what do we have here? The ‘Big 3’ networks in Canada have magically unified their Flex Tablet Plan promotions, as all of them now offer the same two months unlimited promo for your LTE iPad.
First, Rogers offered the two months unlimited LTE data plan, and now Bell, Virgin, and Telus have done the exact same.
Rogers will double your data for the next four months afterwards though, but they also have a promo if you sign a…contract. Here’s how iPadinCanada.ca reader Doc explains it:
Stumbled up on an interesting promo in a Rogers Store today. Sign a 1 year contract on their flex data plan ($21.93 for 500MB) and they’ll give you a $200 credit. (sign said $100, but it was crossed out in pen and changed to $200) If you do the math, it works out to $7.89/month after fee, tax & credit applied
Update 1: This promo was given at the Metrotown Rogers store in Burnaby (next to T&T)
Bell and Virgin customers can pay just $5/month or $20/month for the first two months and have unlimited data. Bell also notes they are ‘the only network that never falls back to 2G’, an attempt to downplay the Rogers network. This offer expires March 30th, 2012 (I bet it will be extended).
Telus has now also offered two months of unlimited data on their Flex Tablet plans, just like the others, with no activation fee. Their offer expires April 30th, 2012.
Note that the ‘Big 3’ carriers do not allow ‘on-device data plans’ to be activated right on the new iPad, something original iPad and iPad 2 owners were able to do.
So, which carrier have you jumped on for LTE flex data plans? Take our poll below!
