Through its merger with Shaw Communications, Rogers is focused on making long-term network investments to ensure all Canadians can access world-class connectivity.
Rogers demonstrated that commitment with their announcement that it will make 5G more accessible to more Canadians.
The telecom giant has reduced the price per gigabyte of data by 50% on its most-chosen plan, has lowered its 5G entry price, and will provide all Rogers 4G wireless customers with access to the 5G network at no cost.
Phil Hartling, President of Wireless at Rogers, said that the company has invested to build the largest 5G network in the country, covering more than 2,000 communities. He added that Rogers is committed to ensuring all Canadians can access the best 5G technology.
The new 5G wireless plans and bundles from Rogers bring more value and choice to Canadians.
The company is now offering double the ultra speed data on its popular $85/month unlimited plan. Customers can now access 50GB of the fastest Rogers 5G speeds for the price of the previous 25GB plan. Bundled with residential services, customers can now get a 5G wireless plan starting at $55 per month, priced 35% lower than the previous 5G entry plan on Canada’s best network.
More choices are available to more customers with new 5G plans for newcomers to Canada, parents of kids and teens getting their first phone, and individuals aged 55+. Over the coming months, all Rogers wireless customers with voice and data plans will be proactively provided with access to the Rogers 5G network at no extra charge.
“Canadians already pay less per month for wireless services than customers in the United States, and we are continuing to deliver more value,” added Hartling. “Today’s announcement is part of our ongoing commitment to make our services more accessible and affordable.”
Last month Rogers reaffirmed its commitment to a 100% Canadian-based Customer Service team by repatriating hundreds of Shaw jobs back to Canada.
