In late June, we reported Quebec’s Videotron launched a $30/month 6GB data plan. Such data plans originally popped up from the ‘Big 3’ carriers as ‘limited promotions’ during the times of available iPhone upgrades.
For those unaware, the first introduction of the 6GB plan was back in 2008 when consumers dismissed Rogers’ initial iPhone data plans, and the company relented to pressure from an online petition that garnered over 60,000 signatures.
It appears our prediction has come true–Rogers, Telus, and Bell have released similar $30 6GB data plans in Quebec to compete directly with Videotron, according to MobileSyrup. Telus notes their promotional data add-on is a ‘competitive response’:
This data plan is applicable to all smartphones including the iPhone 4 and other Android devices. Gee, competition is a good thing! Now, if only the rest of Canada can benefit today from this excellent data plan like Quebecers.
Raise your hand if you’re on the $30/month $6GB data plan. It’s perfect for using with Personal Hotspot.
