If you bring your own device, you can get 10% off your monthly bill. What do you think of these plans?

On a side note, double the data and minutes promos have ended with Koodo, Virgin Mobile and Fido. Hope you managed to jump on those as regular two-year term plans have now kicked in.

LTE Roaming Agreement Signed with Swisscom

Rogers today also announced it has signed a LTE roaming agreement with Swisscom in Switzerland, making them the ‘first Canadian carrier to bring LTE roaming to Europe’. The agreement started July 31 and customers with a 2600Mhz device (excludes iPhone) can access LTE networks. Other LTE roaming agreements Rogers has overseas include Hong Kong and South Korea.

    I don’t get the difference between the $60 & $70 plans listed in the first graphic. Misprint?

  • ward09

    Garbage.

  • Peter Pottinger

    lol $80 for 500mb?? wtf is this

  • Felipe

    Wow. I pay $75 with Tax for 200 mins, MY10 Canada Wide, 7GB of data and now they are charging 80 for only 500mb? What a joke

  • http://www.oshawapilot.ca Oshawapilot

    In whose world is 200 megabytes of data an even remotely reasonable amount anymore?

    SERIOUSLY? These sorts of ridiculously low caps are for one reason, and one reason only – screw the consumer with overage charges when he/she unknowingly (and very likely) exceeds these caps on a very regular basis.

    (shakes head in disgust….awaits Verizon impatiently…..)

    Manitoba Plans still advertised – 5GB for $65 & 1GB for $55 both with unlimited canada wide calling – appears to be 2 year plan like the rest of them.

  • pegger1

    Yeah, those are Manitoba offers. In July there was a $55 unlimited canada wide with 3GB (3yr)

    Smart Picks

  • JB

    … as in it’s more smart to pay $60 instead of $70? Sorry, not a Rogers customer, don’t know what a “smart pick” is.

    *edit*
    Oh, a little research, and I see it’s a “lite” smartphone subsidy. Presumably for cheaper models and not the flagship phones. Got it.

    Verizon must be very serious because I’ve seen a couple of Verizon network trucks in Mississauga, ON likely scouting the wind/mobilicity networks

    My wife frequently uses less than 200MB of data per month. I think there’s only a few months over the past 3 years she’s used more than 200MB.

    I’m not saying these prices are reasonable, but I am saying I welcome a discount for data usage in that range as it makes my wife’s plan cheaper.

  • Chris Mark

    No iPhone.

  • Chris Mark

    Which one of the 3 offers with 1GB data + iPhone 5 is the best pick? Robellus are all the same!!! $85.

  • Chris Mark

    Even though they have a steep unlocking price, Bell’s offer is the best. They also give you a $50 discount when you sign for the $85 plan for the subsidized iPhone 5.

  • Chris Mark

    How soon? I gotta buy the damn iPhone immediately.

  • Chris

    Those ppl currently on 3yr plans that want to switch to the newer plans will have to pay out there flextab prior to getting the new month-2-month/2yr plans…..

  • djepsilon

    Well this pretty much figures it out for me… I am FINALLY contract free as of July 2013 and was considering locking into a new contract for a discount on the next iPhone… but these prices are ludicrous. I currently pay $62/mo for My10, 200min, unlimited text, VVM, caller ID, and 6GB shared data with my iPad. Sweet retention plan and no where CLOSE to these plans…

    And come on…10% off if you bring your own device? Are you kidding me? That makes ZERO sense! I’m buying unlocked phones from Apple for always now and hanging on to my plan for as long as humanly possible!

  • djepsilon

    I’m also confused. These prices are higher because of handset subsidy right? What happens after the two years is up?

  • http://gusfosarolli.com GusF

    Hmmm, no mention of texting at all, is this an extra fee?

  • Chrome262

    As Rogers et al, come to realize that larger and larger chunks of they smart phone revenue comes from data, you start seeing each of them raising and raising their prices for it. So you go for 35 to 50 bucks a month for 1,2, or even 3 gigs. to barely 250meg. Its so obvious, so dreading when my contract is up, i use at least a gig every month

  • Nick00050

    LOL!!! YOU CUSTOMER’S WANTED 2 YEAR CONTRACTS AND YOU GOT IT!! NOW SUCK IT UP AND CARRY ON…

  • http://gusfosarolli.com GusF

    I’ve been called worse by people who at least are not afraid to write there names on a post.
