There are whispers that Rogers will be revamping their data costs as of October 1 for the better.

  • $15 – 2 MB
  • $25 – 500 MB
  • $30 – 1 GB
  • $60 – 3 GB
  • $80 – 8 GB

      While those might not add up much to the $30 for 6 GB promo plan that was going in August (looks like it’s going to be extended through September), there are a few more things that make these new data rates way more appealing. First off, the first three months of data usage will be free, allowing subscribers to figure out which plan suits them best. Second, users will now get SMS alerts when they approach their limit so they won’t get dinged with heavy-duty overage charges. Thirdly, even if you happen to go over on data, those costs will capped at $100. This is awesome news for those of us who happen to be a little zealous with our mobile browsing, and makes tethering a much more realistic option. Telus and Bell will really have to step up to the plate in order to compete with a plan this appealing… Maybe their supposed HSPA partnership will bring something juicy to customers, like, say, the BlackBerry Bold.
