Rogers Canada Offers 6GB Data Plan for $30/Month

Rogers issued a press release today announcing a last minute special promotional offer for the iPhone 3G in Canada.

Effective July 11, and as a limited time promotional offer for customers who activate by August 31 on a three year contract, a data-only offering of 6GB of data for $30 per month is being made available that can be added to any in-market voice plan. For example, with 6GB of data, iPhone 3G users can visit 35,952 web pages, or send and receive 157,286 emails, or watch 6,292 minutes of YouTube videos each and every month.

The rate plan appears to be in response to the overwhelming consumer outrage at the original iPhone plans announced two weeks ago. Initially, data plans for the iPhone topped out at 2GB for the highest $115/month plan which also came with 800 voice minutes + unlimited voice nights/weekends.

Select Rogers stores in Canada will open at 8 a.m. on July 11th for the iPhone 3G launch.
