Rogers ‘Simplified Pricing’ Talk, Text and Internet Plans Revealed

Share:

Less than a week ago word leaked Rogers was set to announce new ‘Simplified Pricing’ plans that featured unlimited talk, text and various data buckets. The exact pricing for these plans have been revealed as noted by MobileSyrup, which says there are 7 plans in total.

There are 3 talk and text plans that come with the following:

  • unlimited text, picture and video messaging
  • unlimited evenings and weekends
  • unlimited Canada-wide calling via Rogers One Number on your Mac/PC

Here’s where they differentiate: 

  • $27/month: 150 weekday minutes
  • $37/month: 1000 weekday minutes
  • $45/month: 1000 weekday minutes + 100MB data

There are 4 talk, text and internet plans that come with the following:

  • unlimited text, picture and video messaging
  • available monthly and on 3 year contracts
  • data overages $15/GB; can be shared + LTE ready
  • caller ID and voicemail: $12.79/month, included in value packs
  • local calling can become national calling for $10/month

Here’s where the 4 talk, text and internet plans differentiate:

  • “Occasional” for $55/month: 1000 weekday minutes, 200MB data
  • “Social” for $65/month: unlimited talk/text, 1GB data
  • “Streamer” for $75/month: unlimited talk/text, 3GB data
  • “Connected” for $95/month: unlimited Canada-wide talk/text, 5GB data

Considering Canadians are increasingly adopting smartphones, using less voice minutes and more data, these plans seem to meet the opposite needs of what’s happening.  

It’ll be interesting to see what TELUS and Bell respond with. We’d like to see plans that include caller ID and voicemail for the talk, text and internet plans.

What do you think of these so far?
