Rogers’ Chatr Mobile Launches ‘Data Plus’ Top-Up Feature

Chatr Mobile, a ‘discount’ wireless carrier owned by Rogers, has launched a new feature called Data Plus today, which allows users to purchase one-time data top-ups, when they’ve reached their monthly data buckets (up to three times before your next Anniversary date).

Data Plus is a convenient, one-time data top-up that increases your data allotment. Data Plus is available when you need data to get you through to your next Anniversary Date. Stay connected and up-to-speed at an affordable price without changing your plan.

For customers on the company’s Talk & Text plans ($25/$35/$45) with the data add-on, they will receive an SMS when they hit 75% and 100% of their monthly data allotments.

For customers on an in-zone Talk, Text and Data plan ($40/$45/$50), they will get notified by SMS when they hit 90% and 100% of their monthly 3G speed allotment.

When SMS messages are received, customers will have the option to immediately purchase a data top-up that can be used up to three times per billing cycle. Here’s what’s available:

  • $5 for 200 MB (Chatr Talk and Text plan with data add-on customers)
  • $5 for 500 MB at 3G speeds (Chatr in-zone Talk, Text and Data plan customers)
Unlike Telus-owned Public Mobile’s data add-ons, unused Data Plus does not roll over to following months or billing cycle.
The fine print says data usage is rounded up to the next full KB, while data roaming rates also apply: $0.05/MB in Canada (for in-zone talk, text and data plans only), $6/MB U.S. roaming, $30/MB international roaming (where available).
Former Mobility customers who have an exclusive Chatr plan, are not available to purchase Data Plus add-ons.
Also, a Chatr Mobile spokesperson explained in an email to iPhone in Canada, customers will now also be able to modify their price plans online via the My Chatr account portal.
