Rogers data plans for iPad

Hi,

Does anyone know what happens if you go over the Rogers 5Gb data limit on the iPad? I could not find any information on the Rogers website and when I called Rogers, the person who helped me couldn't seem to answer any of my questions.

Does this mean Rogers won't publish all data plan details until May 28th?


Thanks!
George

I'm assuming they'll just cut off the data since it's prepaid, so they can't add any extra charges.

I agree. I can see them sending a notification saying you are close to the limit, renew or lose data once you hit 100%

From what I read on roger's blog with either the 250 or 5gb plans you can't go over, they are more like prepaid "buckets" of data, or prepaid minutes if you are familiar with those plans, You buy a set amount of data that expires in one month if you don't use it up, the downside is no "roll-over" if you "top up". Once you've used up the 250 or 5gb, you buy another 250 or 5gb and have another 30 days to use it.

This is good to hear. I was worried that if I ever went over the 5 Gb limit, I'd be charged for the additional data at a much higher rate.
