Default Rogers Wireless data rates

Please Login to Remove!

I recently switched from the $100/200MB BlackBerry data plan to the $65/50MB BlackBerry data plan so I could keep my monthly bill below $200/per month. I'm now paying just over $160 a month for all my wireless services.

I know data in Canada is expensive so I'm not going to whine about it or anything like that but curious if there are any forthcoming data promotions or new BlackBerry data rates coming soon that Rogers reps here may know of?

It's too bad the $20 essential value pack that included the MMS bundle isn't available to BlackBerry subscribers. I tried to add it on but the rep informed me that it conflicted with the BlackBerry.apn since the $20 bundle comes with 2MB of data already.

Instead of paying $0.50 per MMS I just email the pictures instead so it comes off of my data package but I'm hoping that maybe data rates will come down and become cheaper. Until then I just gotta fork over the dollars every month.

I am also on the Rogers network with the Pearl.
I am paying over 100 per month and I feel that this is overpriced and not supportive of peoples shift to smart phones/mobile internet/modern times!.
I will likely cancel the data plan soon if Rogers can not bring costs down.

Rogers data rates aren't the best but I've been paying them for years. I'm glad they offered the double your data promo for $5 but I just hope that one day they will lower the price or there will be some new data promotions. Both of my corp Rogers reps are on vacation so I can' t ask them so I thought I'd check here to see if any Rogers reps were in the know of anything coming down the pipeline plan wise.

Hey
I hate how expensive data plans are here. Did you know that you could get an unlimited data package in the US for like $30!!!!!!!! I wanted to die when I was told that. Why would they bring down the prices though? I know they're trying to make a buck but aside from ppl pulling out of data deals, why would they do that? I hope they do!!
