Rogers Slashes iPhone Data Rates

After two weeks of taking in on the chin from readers of this site as well as irate Canadians from around the web, Rogers has finally succumbed to the criticism and dropped the data rates for the new 3G iPhone. The new rate, available only as a promotion for those who sign up before Aug. 31, gives iPhone subscribers the option of purchasing a 6-gigabyte data plan for $30 per month in addition to any voice plan. Previously, $30 would only have provided for 300 megabytes.

In an article on the Toronto Star web site, John Boynton, the senior vice-president and chief marketing officer of Rogers Wireless, claimed the promotional offer is in response to customer concerns.

"We're responding to our customers that gave us a lot of feedback," he said, adding that rumours about a spat with Apple over pricing or a limited supply of iPhones were false.
