Canada’s Big Three Now All Offer 6GB Data for $30/Month

This “promotional” data plan pops up from time to time, usually coinciding with the launch of a new iPhone. While I don’t foresee the release of an iPhone 5 within the next couple of weeks, all of Canada’s big three wireless providers are now re-introducing the 6GB promotional data add-on for $30 a month.

Bell and Rogers were first to do it for this round, but Telus has now joined the 6GB party too. Remember that the regular $30/month data add-on usually only provides you with 1GB of data, so this is a pretty good deal. Interestingly, unlike some of the previous offerings, you don’t necessarily have to sign up for a three-year contract to get the promotional data add-on.

The $30/6GB option is available on one, two, or three year service agreements, as well as for those of you who are doing the month-to-month thing. The catch is that you still need that “$50 minimum spend” requirement that is the same for any subsidized smartphone. The data add-on is compatible with HSPA and CDMA customers, but it’s unclear if this supports LTE too. A document from Rogers points toward a February 28th expiry date for this offer, but that could get extended. No indication from Bell or Telus about expiry.

    interesting that these plans exist but you have to get a detective to locate them….smacks of deviousness…maybe even fraud? Bell doesn’t know that they have the 10gb/50. plan. Not even Corporate Kiosks….but they DO HAVE IT
