Rogers Wireless has introduced its new North American One Rate wireless data plans, designed for Canadian residents who frequently find themselves travelling to the United States. Generally priced at $10 more than their Canada-only equivalents, the new plans allow Rogers customers travelling to the U.S. to use their device’s data capabilities the same way they would at home, without incurring roaming fees when using data within their monthly allotment. Adding the One Rate option to the high-end 1GB smartphone data plan results in a price of $40, instead of $30 for Canada-only coverage; a 500GB plan is also available. It is unclear whether promotional accounts, such as the $30/6GB that many Rogers Wireless iPhone users are on, will qualify for the new One Rate offerings.
