Those outside of Quebec are paying much more for similar plans. In Ontario, an equivalent Rogers 7GB Share Everything plan costs $95 per month, while the 12GB plan costs $130 per month, differences of $33 and $45 respectively.
Bell right now has a promo in Quebec offering $60 for 7GB data (4GB + 3GB bonus) at a couple bucks cheaper than Rogers, while also offering the same $85 plan with 12GB (10GB + 2GB bonus).
TELUS has a $62.50/month plan with 7GB (4GB + 3GB bonus), but only if two people minimum are on the account, but for individual users it’s $75 for 7GB (can’t find the BYOP on the TELUS website?). Their 12GB plan is $100 per month.
Quebec-based carrier Videotron is putting pressure on Big 3 players such as Rogers, as the former has similar ‘promo’ plans priced right now at $57.95 for 7GB with nationwide calling, plus a 9GB plan for $73.95 per month.
According to RFD, the Rogers and Bell promo plans have been around since August 2016 but have now returned, probably timed for back to school. These Rogers plans are eligible for a 30% off corporate rebate (one line; most expensive line), plus Desjardins customers get a 10% rebate. You can check your eligibility here.
