Rogers Statement: Potentially tweaking plans for more Data

Quote:
Customers are not restricted just to the 4 iphone bundles that were announced & are able to select from most of our other voice & data plans. We do not have an unlimited data plan, although we are looking at potentially tweaking some of the data plan bucket sizes. More to follow.

Are they caving? Could this possibly be a break for us?

Sounds somewhat promising, however I don't think people will be happy unless it's truly unlimited. And by the sounds of his note, they're only looking to increase the limits, not make them unlimited.

On another note.....it's Friday! Whoooooooooo!

Hopefully that's true because it would probably turn 400 mb into something like 1 gig

That's awesome. This is one of or the biggest backlashes against Rogers I've ever seen.

It doesn't sound like they plan on reducing the price though, just giving you more data. I'm fine with the 400MB most likely, but only if it was maybe $15 per month which is more reasonable.

I got a response yesterday to the complaint I sent in about there being no couples/family plan options. It said something to the effect that all plans are not as of yet finalized, to check Rogers web site the day of the launch. So it didn't shut the door on that either.

It just leaves me thinking did they not do ANY research prior to releasing this several staged, and confusing pricing plans.

Definitely going to wait a week or so, before I jump on any iPhone.

But you know that plan comes with voice too, right? In which case it's almost the same as AT&T, just less data.

I'm not holding my breath. Knowing Rogers, they'll find some new way to make sure you get rogered.

Yeah, but at least you get unlimited data. If they're going to keep it at such low data or maybe increase it to 1GB for the $60/month then they could give the 400MB for much cheaper. My bet is if they did that then there'd be a lot less complaints.

What would really suck is if they only incresed the 3rd and 4th plan (i.e. the 100 and 115$ plans). It's something Rogers would do. But it wouldn't help very many people.

Hopefully they do something like, at the very least, shift every plan's data allowence one to the left, so the 60$ plan is 750, the 75$ is 1GB, the 100$ is 2GB, the $115 is 6GB. Not the BIGGEST difference but it would help.
