If you haven’t heard already, Rogers just released a new 1GB data plan to contend with Bell. Bell has just announced that they will be offering a 1GB data plan for your laptop by using a wireless card for $75. Rogers has done the same but the only difference is that since Rogers is GSM and uses a SIM card the data plan can also be used in Windows Mobile devices. The 1GB data plan will cost you only $65 CAD a month. Call *611 right now and add it to your service plan. You have the option to add it to your existing SIM or on another SIM!!
