Rogers stores all across Canada are getting ready to put in place some very major changes to how their plans works. Essentially, Rogers is moving towards unlimited texting and calling for most of their plants, and will be differentiating the plans based on the amount of data they offer. Android Central mentions that Rogers will also be getting rid of their My5 and My10 programs. Despite the new plans for Rogers’ customers, things are still looking rather expensive.
Overage charges are going to cost a good $15 per GB for the first three tiers of the plans, and then $10 per GB for the top tier plan:
- $55 (Occasional plan) – 200 MB, 1,000 weekday minutes (this is probably the most expensive plan based off of what it offers)
- $65 (Social plan) – 1 GB, unlimited local calling
- $75 (Streamer plan) – 3 GB, unlimited local calling
- $95 (Connected plan) – 5 GB, unlimited Canada-wide calling
There are a couple of other plans focused on families or simple talk and text, but those are the big changes. Basically for a whopping hundred dollars a month, you are able to get everything. The new plans definitely seems a whole lot more streamlined with less hassle than their previous plans, but then again, there are always those hidden extras like caller ID and voicemail.
Rogers will be making these plans available for the public tomorrow on November 7th. Any of our readers in Canada considering one of these plans? Do you think that it is worth shelling out $100 a month for the Connected plan that offers everything you need along with a few Rogers specific perks (e.g. Anyplace TV). Or, do you think it is much more worth it to get on a carrier with a bit less coverage for half the price? WIND or even Mobilicity possibly? What about Bell and TELUS?
Rogers plans sound great, and I would say are a definite improvement compared to what they were using earlier.
