About Rogers Canada:
Rogers is Canada’s biggest cellular services provider and has over 9 million subscribers. Rogers was founded by Ted Rogers in 1983.
These are the 2 main plans offered by Rogers: Fixed and Flex.
Their monthly fixed plans are for those with more predictable surfing habits.
Their 500MB per month plan costs $31.93. 1GB will cost you $36.93. 2GB costs $51.93 and 5GB will set you back $66.93. If you happen to exceed your data for the month you will be charged at 5c per MB.
This one is better suited to people who surf different amounts each month and consume varying amounts of data. Each month you will be charged according to your data consumption. There are four tiers:
For $36.93 you can use up to 500MB of data and if you use more, you will be bumped up into the next tier.
This allows downloads of up to 1GB per month and costs $41.93.
For 2GB you will be charged $56.93
This is good for up to 5GB and costs $71.93 per month.
If you get to Tier 4 and you still manage to use more than 5GB you will be charged at 5c per MB onwards.
This is best for people on a budget or whose need for internet comes and goes. It is activated and paid for online with no hidden fees whatsoever. There is a $10, $25 and $100 option. $10 gets you 100MB and lasts for 30 days. The $25 option gets you 250 MB and lasts for 30 days as well. $100 gets you 1500MB and lasts for 90 days. This is good for roughly 100 minutes on Youtube, 250 photo uploads, 2500 web pages and 7500 emails.
There is also an ‘Auto-Refill’ option which will automatically buy more credits for your internet allowance. This is done by charging your credit card and delivering the credit to your device as soon as you run out.
Each of these plans comes with unlimited social networking, Rogers Online Protection security system, 3 email addresses and no excess usage charges for the first 2 months. All of these plans are available on 1, 2 or 3 year terms.
The Rogers mobile internet service is based around the ever-popular stick modem. Rogers refers to them as ‘Rocket Sticks’. There are 2 models on offer from Rogers. The first one is the Nokia CS-18 and the other option is the ZTE MF668. Both of these predominantly feature Rogers colors and branding. Both feature a fully-fledged 4G wireless modem and internal antenna. They can both achieve 21mbps download speeds and automatically install their appropriate drivers when they are first plugged in. Both are usable in over 190 countries. Here are the differences:
The Nokia is expandable up to 32GB, is $20 cheaper at $129.99 and has a prepaid option with a one-off cost of $149.99.
Canada’s major cities and towns are very well covered by Rogers’ network. Most of them are covered by either LTE, 4G, GSM or EDGE.
