Rogers Communications today announced the launch of a new program to make 5G wireless services more accessible to eligible low-income Canadians.
The new Connected for Success 5G Mobile Plan with a no-cost 5G smartphone gives over 2.5 million Canadians a more affordable way to connect to 5G wireless services.
Today’s announcement builds on Rogers commitment to bring affordable 5G services to all Canadians.
In May, the company reduced the price per gigabyte of data on its most popular 5G plan by 50% and lowered its 5G entry price by 35% to $55 when bundled with residential services. It also provided all Rogers 4G wireless customers with access to the 5G network at no extra charge.
Since Rogers dropped the price of its 5G mobile plans in May 2023, wireless prices in Canada declined 12% according to Statistics Canada’s latest Consumer Price Index. The report measures changes in the cost of goods and services.
The company is also offering Canadians more affordable ways to buy a new phone and get more value for the money they spend.
Customers can buy a new phone with any Rogers credit card and lower their monthly payments by up to 50% with 48-month device financing, 0% interest, and no term mobile contract. Rogers customers with the Rogers red credit card also get up to 2.6% unlimited cash back on all purchases.
“As more and more aspects of everyday life move online, universal access to reliable, affordable, high-speed internet and wireless service is essential so everyone can reach their full potential. This is the foundation upon which the Alberta Broadband Strategy was built. I couldn’t be happier that Rogers’ commitments align with that strategy and I look forward to continuing to work together toward a better, more connected future,” commented Nate Glubish, Alberta’s Minister of Technology and Innovation, on the Rogers announcement.
