    so I called in to switch over, but things got interesting...

    I have 2 phones. 1 for my daughter with a 20 dollar talk and text plan with no data.

    1 for me with 10 gb and the works for an additional 75 dollars.

    Been with rogers since the flintstones were around....

    I was told that they would need to upgrade us both to the 75 dollar plan and they wouldn't do just one...

    wtf.. can anyone shed some light on this

    That’s correct. The Rogers Infinite plan is shareable. You can share with friends/family on other Infinite plans. You can also share with smart watches, cellular tablets/PCs for $10 per device.
    TELUS: Unlimited Canada-wide Talk, Text and 15+10 GB Data
    Koodo: Unlimited Canada-wide Talk, Text and 8+9 GB Data
    chatr: Unlimited In-zone Talk, Text and Data (20 GB at 3G speed)

    ok but I don't want my daughters 20dollar plan to change. it makes no sense to have her go from 20 to 75 .... I would pay 75 and then share with her for an extra 10 bucks...

    Excellent news! Is your daughter sharing your data for $10 a month? Is she still on her $20 Talk & Text plan?

    I was told it would be 65 per month to have her on the share. I kept her on the 20 dollar talk and text anyhow

    The unlimited plans are effectively a 'pay more for more', as there has been little incentive to _really_ go mobile for everything in Canada.
    It was not to different ~10 years ago in the US either.
    T-Mobile does give me a good unlimited plan... $30US/50GB / line x 4 lines - including fees and international (i.e. Canada)
    Saskatchewan truly tells why plans are so expensive in Canada... because they can be.
    I suspect that there's enough pressure from content creators to push into the unlimited, as Bell/Telus/Rogers really don't need to do ... anything.
    That being said - Bell has built out a LOT more in rural areas - I suspect partially as they would like to also sell home internet service in rural locations over LTE/5G. Rural communities cost to support copper.
    AT&T... your world, throttled.

    Rogers subscriber base is going to grow with this one. Just tweak the plans every few quarters and you've got a winning solution for all of Canada.
    Rogers will also need to build out its rural areas 'somewhat' if it wants to grow. The urban area is the 'low fruit hanging from the tree', but rural markets end up being 'what works or doesn't'.

    I wrote the CRTC about this 3 years ago and since then they've introduced the EXT network. As you can see from the Rogers coverage map, Rogers clients can natively roam on the Bell'us network.

    I suspect that, just like in the US T-Mobile roaming on AT&T has limits of use.
    If I was to purchase a Rogers unlimited and used ~30GB/month on Bell... I suspect that it would not end well.

    Yes, I think its 50% limit of the past 6 months of usage

    Post Rogers Adds USA "Unlimited" Option, Tests Limits of Wireless Code

    For Canadians who travel frequently to the United States Rogers have added three new plans with unlimited calling and data on both sides of the border. The catchy branding is "Canada+US Rogers Infinite"; options are about as obvious:

    Infinite +10 - 10 GB of data at max speed for $95/month
    Infinite +20 - 20 GB of data at max speed for $115/month
    Infinite +50 - 50 GB of data at max speed for $145/month

    For less frequent visitors the $7/day Roam Like Home option is still available.

    Another interesting development is a new 36-month "edge" financing option for devices. You might recall that the CRTC's Wireless Code mandates service contracts of up to 24 months, but according to Rogers customers who finance their devices are technically still on month-to-month terms:

    Rogers President, Wireless Services, Brent Johnston, told the Globe and Mail, “We’ve read [the code] carefully. It’s our opinion that it’s compliant.”
    That Globe article is unfortunately behind a paywall, so see the first link below for more on this.
