Oodles of Rogers news

Comments

Rogers logoCanada’s biggest carrier, Rogers, is starting off its Monday in style with a bunch of news to tickle the fancy of BlackBerry Cool readers.

First up is news that Rogers will be offering HSDPA 3G network access for subscribers starting this fall (conveniently coming just after Rogers’ 5th anniversary of GSM network support). This would indicate that we’ll be seeing the BlackBerry 8707 or a newer, yet unnamed BlackBerry from Rogers right when our kids are doing their back to school thing (don’t be surprised if it ends up being both).

The second bit of Rogers news is their new data plan for BlackBerry users starting tomorrow, the details of which you can find after the jump.

Rogers will offer a new “unlimited data” plan of 200 MB for 100 CDN a month.

Rogers will also be changing their previous data plans, shown below.

– 25 CDN for 0.5 MB, additional: 31 CDN per MB
– 40 CDN for 1 MB, additional: 10 CDN per MB
– 60 CDN for 25 MB, additional: 7 CDN per MB

While Rogers’ site hasn’t been updated yet, this news is coming from the fairly reliable folks at Pinstack.

    Mark Rejhon’s petition (http://www.petitiononline.com/rogersbb/petition.html) has finally worked!

    All it took was 20 some odd months of going to every BlackBerry forum and site online and complaining about the bill.

    Good job, Mark. Now, let’s join a petition for phone number portability.
