Rogers Wireless has lowered the price customers will pay to bring their own devices to its Share Everything plans.
Formerly $50 per month, you’ll now pay $40 for each BYOD line you connect to your Share Everything plan, which includes unlimited Canada-wide calls, unlimited texting and shareable data. If you buy a new smartphone with Rogers, that charge goes up to $60 per month.
Data isn’t included in the line access price, so a minimum data amount of 250MB will cost you an extra $10 per month, while the average 2GB inclusion is $30 per month (added to your line fee, that’s $70 in total).
The major networks have played around with their SIM-only plan pricing throughout 2014, but the latest move from Rogers is a welcome change.
The new price makes Rogers’ BYOD fee equal to rivals TELUS and Bell Mobility, both of which have a $40 fee each month to connect your own phone to their shared data plans.
