Okay, we all know it, the plan has been with us for more than three months now. It has been revised a few times but I think we should just keep the plan. Does anyone agree?

and maybe even add some tweaks like data only plans for tablets and such.

Im with Erwin. They keep extending the plans every month anyways - they should just make them permenant.
The minutes aren't really a huge selling point, its the data. People want EXCELLENT data plans.

... and since data is in such a high demand, we all know what happens when demand > offer.... high prices :(

Sadly, it's not about to change anytime soon. While not being "better", these plans are, at least, comparable to what's offered elsewhere (except for the AWS carriers).

I used a different strategy to fight high data prices: I switched to Koodo prepaid and did away with data! Vote with your wallets people :oP Do not pay current data prices (on any carrier, that is).

If TELUS come with a 6gb plan for 60$, then it will be a hard decision for me if I leave or stay with Videotron cause yea there are a lot of dead spot even if we can roam without additional fees on the ROGERS' network inside the Province of Quebec. Btw I get better reception almost everywhere in Quebec City with Videotron, even inside buildings.

Well SkAshe, check out Videotron's website to see what they brought us today... Can't hide the fact that it's very much tempting! But I go to rural areas all the time, so...

I already have this plan for 54.95$ (5$ rebate for 3 services). The 3gb is 25$ and 6gb is 30$ so they just subtract 25$ from the plan and add 30$. They just decided to officialese it.

You do all realize if it did stay and was true to their word then this as the normal quantities would then have to double again to be "double rates."

Either way, I prefer same rates across canada!
