Today was the iPhone 6 launch in Canada and if you’re still on the fence deciding on what to get for a contract, we’ve compared shareable 2GB and 4GB plans from Rogers, Telus and Bell for new users. Update: New chart added reflects prices from MTS, SaskTel and Videotron too.
The comparisons are into three segments of the country, as price plans differ in various regions:
- Alberta, BC, Ontario, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, P.E.I and Newfoundland
- Saskatchewan and Manitoba
Activation fees, unlock fees and bring your own device (BYO) discounts are reflected. The comparisons take into account bringing your own unlocked iPhone 6 with the BYOD discount versus the same plan but on a 2-year subsidized iPhone 6 contract.
The best ‘deal’ is highlight in yellow, which looks to be signing a contract, if you’re new to the iPhone and want at least a 2GB or 4GB data plan.
Check out the chart below (Update Sept. 24–added revised chart with MTS, SaskTel and Videotron; also note Bell’s page was showing 2GB for $40, when it’s supposed to be $30)

Don’t forget to check out our numbers on whether it’s better to buy an unlocked iPhone 6 or sign up for one on contract, depending on your existing monthly plan.
Update Sept. 19: We have added a revised chart based on your feedback. Thanks folks!
