Rogers/Fido just announced their iPhone rate plans today, and our Canadian neighbors to the north are sorta freaking out about them. Just take a look at Digg.
We're kind of spoiled here in the U.S. with our unlimited data plans, but capped data and massive overage fees aren't the only thing that Canadian iPhone customers are pissed off about. Get a load of the paltry 150 minute plan and CAN$15 extra charge for caller ID. Sheesh.
Here's a sample of the cheapest iPhone plan on Rogers/Fido (prices are in Canadian dollars):
$60.00 - Price plan - 150 minutes/75 SMS $00.50 - 911 Access fee $06.95 - System Access fee $15.00 - Caller ID (WTF?)
$82.45 - Sub Total
$04.13 - GST $10.73 - Total Taxes
$86.58 - Monthly Total $93.18 - Including PST
I wonder when AT&T is going to clue us in about the U.S. rate plans?
