Upcoming Rogers smartphone plans leave data users high and dry, again

Just like the last time Rogers updated its smartphone plans, we’re torn between loving them and hating them. While they do include a taste of everything for what are pretty reasonable prices for the Canadian wireless marketplace, we can’t stand how Rogers insists upon making its customers choose between a smartphone plan with a completely crap amount of data or another plan entirely. We get that from Rogers’ point of view it’s a “smartphone plan” because it has data included, but 500MB is not a lot of data at all – especially when Rogers touts the fact that tethering is included. Hit up the jump to check out the plans (all prices are CAD).

$45 Smartphone Plan

  • 250 daytime minutes
  • Evenings and weekends at 9pm
  • Rogers to Rogers
  • 500MB data

$50 Smartphone Plan

  • Rogers to Rogers

$75 Smartphone Plan

  • Rogers to Rogers
  • 500MB data

With each of the new plans listed above, customers are permitted to choose one of the following add-ons: Free incoming calls, 5pm start to evening and weekend minutes, my5 Canada-Wide or Unlimited Network Calling.

Thanks, Mike!
