    Rogers Portable Internet

    Does Rogers still offer a service like Bell Unplugged? If so what is your experience with it?

    There is still such a thing, but I from what I've seen, a lot of stores no longer carry it. I think they're making way for the Rocket Stick/Hub.
    Who even wants that hardware anymore? Can only hook it up to one computer at a time, and needs a wall outlet. Might as well get a Rocket Stick - then at least you can move around with it. And then if you don't, get the Hub and you can have up to 10 wifi + 4 wired connections AND home phone.

    The only advantage that Portable Internet has over the Rocket Stick/Hub/HotSpot is the 30 GB monthly data allowance.

    Do you know if the data only for the data stick is eligible for the 15% bundle discount?

    not the stick yet because the way it works with the stick is it has a 0$ network access plan(which is basically a 0$ voice plan), with the data as an add on, and the bundle does not count towards addons.

    this may change soon I hope, as the rocket hub plans are billed as a voice and data plan(much like the combo plans for smartphone blackberries), so therefore are eligible to get bundling discounts.

    30 gb limit but there is no overage charge though so its essentially unlimited.
