Rogers to End BYOD Discount: Prices to Jump by $10-$15 Per Month

Last week, it was reported Bell was set to increase its Share Plans by $5 per month and also hike bring your own device (BYOD) plans to start at $50, which kicked into effect this week.

Rogers similarly followed suit and increased their own Share Everything plans by $5 per month, and now prices are going to get even higher.

MobileSyrup now explains an internal memo details some more price increases from Rogers. Here’s what to expect, starting January 20, 2016:

  • BYOD benefit to be eliminated
  • No Tab plans will jump $10 to $15 per month to match Smart Tab prices (e.g. 1GB No Tab to leap from $65 to $80 per month)
  • Another price jump example: 60GB No Tab Share Everything to increase by $10 to $375/month (yes, this is a real plan)
  • Additional lines to get price hike: will jump from $35 to $50 for local calling plan; $60 to $65 for Premium Tab Canada-Wide plan

It’s not getting any cheaper to own a wireless device from Rogers and Bell. No word yet on whether TELUS will match these price increases. Right now, the desire to see what Shaw will do with WIND Mobile can’t come soon enough.
