Rogers forgets to bring value to smartphone users in Q4

Rogers Wireless will not carry the BlackBerry Storm.

Listen up, Rogers. We know that you have a business to run and that you need to please your shareholders, but it seems like your latest smartphone plans are a bit of step backwards. Sure, the prices are pretty attractive for the Canadian market, but Bells smartphone plans for Q4 are way better. What’s that? Oh, you can tether with all Rogers data plans? Big deal because your network has been so congested lately that it’s not even worth the effort. So why don’t you play nice and offer customers the choice of choosing unlimited data with no tethering or capped data with tethering? It’d make life so much more fun. The addition of Special Choice and My5 to some plans is great, but it’s not enough to make up for the negatives. Hit the jump for the full break down of Roger’s plans!
