Rogers iPhone Plans Prompt Massive Outcry

Posted June 28, 2008 at 2:37pm by iClarified
Rogers announced pricing plans on Friday for Apples 3G iPhone, prompting a massive outcry from angry Canadian customers.

Already a petition website has been launched at http://www.FuckYouRogers.com through which 5,500 signatures and messages have been collected. An open letter to Steve Jobs and various others at Rogers and Apple have been sent.

Rogers is offering voice and data plans ranging in price from $60 to $115 a month for the iPhone. The top-end $115 gives 800 weekday minutes and unlimited evenings and weekends. It includes 300 text messages and 2 gigabytes of data usage.

In comparison, AT&T offers unlimited 3G iPhone data plans for $30 a month in addition to voice plans that start at $39.99 a month.

Also, Rogers is forcing a three year contract on its customers; whereas, AT&T requires a two year contract.

Rogers is the only GSM cellular provider in Canada giving them the ability to set extremely high prices without the fear of competition. The Canadian government is trying to improve the situation by auctioning off additional wireless frequencies to encourage competition.

Do you have any resources to get this article out to the large news papers? Toronto, Ottawa, London, Windsor, Calgary, Vancouver, etc.? The only chance we have at making them re-think their pricing is to get this out to the masses and let everyone know just how much Rogers is ripping us off!
