Bell Ditches 6GB Plan for 5GB Following Similar From Rogers

06 September 2015

Bell has removed the 6GB option from its Family and Personal share plans and replaced it with a 5GB tier in all provinces but Quebec. This move is similar to one made recently by Rogers, which replaced its old 2GB, 4GB, 6GB, 10GB and 15GB setup with 2.5GB, 5GB, 9GB and 15GB plans, once again in most but not all provinces. The 500MB and 1GB for Rogers tiers remained untouched.

Telus is the one remaining carrier in the top three to offer a 6GB plan to the Canadian market at large. This fact isn’t so much news by itself; offering a 6GB product against two other 5GB ones is pretty dry stuff. What is worth noting is the possible beginnings of a trend in the Canadian carrier market.

First, Rogers changes up its plans to offer new data allotments at often discounted prices (the new 5GB Rogers plan is the same price as the old 4GB one). Second, Bell follows suit with its own pricing changes.

There’s a good chance Telus will follow suit in the coming weeks, if only to ensure that it too makes headlines alongside the competition. Hopefully, if those changes do come, they’ll be competitive enough to offer even more ways to save for Canadian mobile subscribers.
