I'm really hoping - as are many others - that the $20 is a one time fee and not monthly. It really doesn't make it clear.
If it's a one time fee then tying my iPhone and iPad data together with my 6GB plan would be great.
I'm sure we'll hear more from Rogers later today.

I notice that Roger$ is charging 20 cents for the micro-sim when you order the iPad 3G. You'd figure for the rate that they are charging for data they could eat that 20 cents as a one time startup cost.
Yes. The $20 to add to an existing plan doesn't say if it is a monthly cost or not. I'm hoping not and have gone ahead and ordered a 64 gig WIfi+3G. For some reason the SIM card is an extra 20 cents. Maybe they have to show some value.
My corporate discount did not get applied to the iPad. I just checked online and this is the same in the US. Darn. That would have been good for at least $50 off.

i've got a feeling that the $20 IS monthly....the other 'plans' are, so i'm sure they would specify otherwise. what a joke....$20/month for the priviledge of using data i'm already paying for? sounds like tethering is the way to go....
I like how Apple gives you more information about Rogers data plans than Rogers. Any time Rogers would like to take their paying customers seriously would be just great.
There is also nothing saying if this is monthly with or without a contract. The $15/250MB is right in line, but the $35/5GB is nowhere near the contracts in the US. My guess ... monthly contract with 2-3 year buy in. Please, prove me wrong.
Rogers holds on to data like it is life-giving oxygen. Maybe it's a good thing; while Rogers service is not stellar, it sure isn't as bad as AT&T.
20 bucks ON TOP of what I'm paying for my 6GB plan?
Truly, greedy scumbags,, really. Screw that, wifi for me, since I don't plan on carrying it around at all.
