Telephoned Rogers, they say the plan is available beginning tomorrow.
Also, some more info from the popular 20,000-view thread in the Rogers forum of HowardForums, many confirmations that this plan actually exists upon Bold launch (or even July 11, existing BlackBerry subs can call in and change their BlackBerry plan)

This is a great day for Canada. From 25 megabytes for $60/month
to 6 gigabytes for just $30/month in less than 2 months! Data rates finally similiar to U.S. mobile companies! Thank you, iPhone and consumer pressure!
We still have a problem with other costs, such as text messaging (charged for incoming messages on Bell and Telus), and caller ID costs $7. But finally, Canadian data rates are slowly becoming a lot more sensible than before!
