Rogers Canada Data Plan Pricing: The Guessing Game Continues
Posted by Jason Dunn in "Pocket PC Talk" @ 11:10 AM
The insanity for us Canadians continues - I posted about the original rumour, $30 for unlimited data, with a sense of enthusiasm. Then I was crushed when the pricing was officially announced and it was completely idiotic - no unlimited data plans, and even the data caps were pretty silly (400 MB doesn't last long when you're browsing full Web pages and streaing YouTube videos). Engadget reported on a rumour that Apple was ticked off about this as well and they actually diverted a good chunk of the iPhones meant for Rogers to Europe - highly amusing if true. ;-) And now we have another rumour: 6 GB of data for $30/month. I have no idea of this is true, but I can only hope it is - and I can equally hope that I'll be able to get one of these plans and use it with my Windows Mobile phone. I guess I'll know pretty soon...
