** Update: New Plans OFFICIALLY RELEASED. **
Listen up Rogers BlackBerry subscribers as you are in for a treat. Tomorrow Rogers will finally introduce their new data plans, which include both Flex and non-Flex options. The slides after the jump will walk you through the positioning and details.
The highlights? If you're a BIS customer and go non-flex you can get 300MB of data for $30. The flexible data option starts at $50 for 500MB (if you go over it bumps you up to the next plan - $65/1GB). Pretty reasonable considering right now $60 will get you a whopping 25MB of data. Sucks to be a BES user though - the new improvements are consumer only. Looks like Rogers will still have both hands in the pockets of corporations.
As a Rogers BlackBerry customer I was pretty excited to hear about these new data plans... until I read the rumors on the net today that the iPhone will launch with an unlimited Consumer Data Plan for $30 and unlimited Enterprise Data Plan for $45. WTF Rogers?! That would be discrimination! Choosing Apples over BlackBerrys. But if these slides tell the tale then it seems the revised data plans (check out slide 3) will cover the iPhone 3G as well.
