The great Rogers data saga continues. Via BlackBerry News, we’re seeing that the company has sifted through usage data and used it as the basis for new plans. Did you know that 95 percent or Rogers iPhone users are consuming less than 500 MB per month? It seems a little strange, but if that’s what the numbers bear out…
The promotional data plan, $30 for six gigs, will be available until October 1. Even if you sign up after that, Rogers is offering three months of unlimited data so that users can gauge their activity level. As such, if you sign up after October 1 it is advisable to utilize the $15 plan for those three months. Afterwards, you’ll have a 2 MB cap, but you can change it depending on your usage.
Here’s the breakdown:
$15 – 2 MB
$25 – 500 MB
$30 – 1 GB
$60 – 3 GB
$80 – 8 GB
Rogers will also offer text alerts to let you know when you’re approaching your limit. And if you do exceed the cap, Rogers is implementing a max overage charge of $100. So you can say goodbye to the surprise $1,200 data bill.
While these plans aren’t exactly perfect, they’re better. At least you’re not paying $40 for 7 MB of data, as was the case about a year ago.
