New Rogers data plans en route for hardcore users

Oh, man. It’s so great that those Christmas deals weren’t just a one-off exception to the rule of crappy Canadian data rates. We’re getting word that some new PC card data plans from Rogers are on the way, which could point to some better BlackBerry rates, too. What kind of plans you ask? How does $100 for 5 GB sound? Well, considering we’re getting 200 MB for that much right now, it sounds pretty sweet. That’s the top tier mind you - things start at $65 for 1 GB, $75 for 2 GB, and $85 for 3 GB, capping off at $100 for 5 GB. Best part, instead of overage charges per kilobyte, you’ll now get bumped up to the next tier automatically if you go over, which sounds totally fair. Right on, Rogers!

This is for Windows mobile devices… “Rogers’ Flex Rate Plan for PC Cards” We can only hope that us BlackBerry users get something good soon too!

It’s progress for sure, but to take Toronto Mayor David Miller’s comments completely out of context:

“We have to demand better.”

Telus offers unlimited data, hotspots and us roaming for $100 and Bell has unlimited data for $75. Both were out way before the start of this plan (jan 10) nice try but no cigar
