Bell Launches 6GB $30 Data Plan, Expires September 30th

Share:

As predicted, Bell has gone ahead and launched a 6GB/$30 data plan to match their competitors, Rogers and Telus. We received a couple email tips this morning of internal notices about this announcement and it was further confirmed by our friends at MobileSyrup. Here are the details:

– 6GB of data for $30; effective today
– Overages: Canada – $0.05 per MB; USA: $6 per MB (pay per use)
– Who’s eligible: new and existing pre-paid clients

Considering these ‘promotional plans’ don’t come very often, I’d jump on them if you’re a heavy data user and missed them the first time around. It’s worth it if you are a fan of the iPhone’s Personal Hotspot feature (and you have a WiFi iPad).

Regardless of the ‘Big 3’ releasing 6GB data plans simultaneously, Canadians should be pretty happy about our options. Who’s jumping on this?

More to come…

    It should be noted that this plan is not available to those with corporate plans … Unless you’re like my wife and argue for 30mins and threaten to leave 🙂

    Yes, but you will be charged for the tethering usage at a unpleasant fee. You may try your luck with TetherMe or other apps that you may install on  a jailbroken device and see if they detect it or not.

    From what I’ve seen on Bell’s website, tethering is included on all plans over $50, so if you have a voice/data plan that totals $50 or more, you get tethering.

    The catch is that Bell wont let you keep your previous plan with this new Data option. You must take the 65$ plan that comes with the 6gb Data option, so its not really 6gb for 30$.
    The plan i have now is 25$ + 25$(Data 500mb) and i have more options and minutes on my plan then the 65$ plan they offer. Bell wont let me upgrade my 500mb option to the 6gb and keep my plan so its not really worth it.

    Not true. From Bell’s website: “[1] Supports personal email accounts and HTML and WAP browsing and
    tethering. Outlook synchronization, corporate email integration and
    other corporate-type solutions not available.”

    Also all over Bell’s website is the phrase “Tethering is included in all rate plans over $50” or something to that effect. I just got a 6Gb plan and I not only confirmed it with the sales rep in the store, but had them call their office to confirm it.  Good to go.
