    Default [Report] Canada > EDGE > Price, usage, data

    Edge works just fine! I called Rogers today and setup an account.
    VISION 10MB Mobile Internet for $5/month. Unfortunately there is a 36 month contract on this. Cancelation fees are as follows:

    - cancel before 12 months and it's a $100 cancellation fee
    - cancel after 12 months and it's $25 bucks.

    Regular price for month on the plan is $10/month for the 10MB plan.

    EDGE settings for Rogers is:

    APN: internet.com
    user: wapuser1
    pass: wap


    I can say that EDGE is slower...obviously... than wifi and have only started to test it out.

    *** NOTE *** the fee is 5c/KB over the 10MB...that means if you go over by 1MB, you'll pay about $50!!!! ***

    This package is not for the heavy user...instead, I'd say it's for those times when you have no WIFI.


    Here's a small breakdown of usage.

    SENT/RECEIVED
    Application - sent/received (kb)

    For every restart - 1/1 (Apparently also does this periodically)
    To check weather - 3/4
    Google maps - 7/43
    Zoom and a small pan - 9/75
    Email check (3x50) - 18/320
    Open email - 4/14
    Safari (google.com) and search - 9/34


    Just to put it into perspective...the numbers above add up to approx. 60/500 (That's 1/2MB already

    Feel free to add if you have any solid numbers

    Just watch out. It's easy to go over your limit. I've seen data bills in the $800CDN area for people that I've unlocked phones for even after I warned them to watch their data useage.

    Using edge for a few apps like Weather, Map, Stocks and just reading e-mail headers is cool, but anything else like internet, youtube, installing apps, etc will cost you!

    Thats just crazy, we need to demand better rates, as cellphone providers in Canada have a Monopolistic system, where prices make no sence! For instance compare with Europe, that use 3G already for much lower prices!!!

    then they tear you a new one.

    actually, Rogers DOES have 3G capable network. You can subscribe to a 1GB plan for $65/month...unfortunately that's on top of your data.

    Here's some more data numbers:

    Application - sent/received (kb)
    Google maps - 7/43
    Zoom and SM pan - 9/75
    Email check (3x50) - 18/320
    Open email - 4/14
    Safari (google.com) and search - 9/34

    Fido also has a 1gb for $65 plan, but its a retention plan. I got it by speaking to customer service and telling them that I want to cancel and go to Rogers with the 1gb for $65 plan. They then transferred me over to customer relations who were happy to give me 1gb for $65. Why this is not available to everyone, I do not know, but I'm happy.

    65$ for a GB is still pricey considering Bell is offering unlimited mobile browsing for 7$ a month! We really need some competition for Rogers/Fido so that they can offer better data plans to all Canadians....
