A while back we confirmed Rogers had brought back the 6GB/$30 data plan, only available to those that called in and gave a SOC code to customer service agents. Just today, the company has launched the plan again as part of the new ’6GB Super Plan’, as noted on the Rogers website. The site link hasn’t been updated to detail the plan, but MobileSyrup has the goods from an internal doc:
- 6 GB of Data, 3G/LTE ready
- Unlimited MY10 Canada-Wide
- Unlimited Messaging
- Unlimited 6PM Evenings & Weekends
- Unlimited Canada-Wide Calling from Your Computer with Rogers One Number
- 200 Weekday Minutes
You’ll note the plan doesn’t include Caller ID/Voicemail, so that of course will be extra. If you consider the 6GB data plan costs $30, you’re essentially getting a decent $30 voice plan with My10 Canada-wide and 6pm evenings. Add on a $15 value pack for CallerID/Voicemail and you will have a decent $75/month plan, without contract.
It’s also worth noting Telus is also offering the 6GB/$30 data plan.
Let us know if you’ll be jumping on this plan in the comments. I wonder if this will be extended into the Fall for the launch of the next iPhone.
Update 1: The Rogers Redboard has this to say about data sharing with the new 6GB Super Plan:
Data Sharing with 6 GB Super Plan
As you can see, 6 GB is a lot of data, especially for just one device. That’s why we recommend our data sharing plan. Now being offered at $10 off/month for 10 months, the data sharing plan is the perfect way to keep all your essential devices connected. By signing up for a no-term data sharing plan with the 6 GB Super Plan, you can maximize your monthly data usage by sharing your data across as many as four additional devices. So whether you’re using your smartphone, tablet, rocket stick or laptop, you will always be connected.
