Rogers Introduces Six-Months-Free Apple Music Perk With Select Infinite Data Plans in Canada

Canadian carrier Rogers this week announced that customers can receive six months of free access to Apple Music when signing up for select Infinite data plans, including its 20GB plan for $80 per month or 50GB plan for $125 per month.

The offer is available to new and existing Apple Music subscribers on iOS or Android, and can be redeemed through the MyRogers app. After the six-month free period, customers will have Apple Music's standard $9.99 per month cost charged directly on their Rogers bill. The offer is not applicable to family or student subscriptions.

Rogers is the only Canadian carrier to now offer Apple Music as a perk, following in the footsteps of Verizon in the United States.

South African carrier MTN has also rolled out a six-months-free Apple Music offer.

Yep, and they actually used to be much worse! There’s basically only 3 carriers with national coverage here (although they each own flanker brands) and they price fix.

I recently scored a 20 GB plan (includes unlimited nationwide talk and text) for $55/month and that is considered a stellar deal here.

As a Canadian ( now residing abroad) I can tell you that the cable TV, mobile phone and Internet charges are amongst the highest in the world. The government has an agency (CRTC) to monitor and regulate these few firms but they do bugger all in favour of the consumer. Rogers and Bell are both crooks and get away with scams that would put individuals in jail. Don't believe anything they advertise or offer. It is very sad and disturbing that a first world country of 35 million people have such limited choice in technology that is crucial to living in 2020. When I tell my friends in Canada that here in Northern Europe I have unlimited data for a decent price, they just shake their heads and lament the incompetent governments who have been in the back pockets of the Canadian telecom for years.

Wow, I thought my unlimited everything (inc tethering) for £20/m was a bit steep!

And they think that is great but unlimited talk is old news. Data is what people need and use. It is still 1985 in Canada telco wise.

I forgot to mention one of the endearing marketing approaches that the big three telcos in Canada have used. It has been documented, proven and they have faced public outcry as a result. Their call centre employees, when realising they have a non-techy senior on the phone, have actually enticed the customer (victim) who does not own a omputer to agree to an Internet contract.

Many news stories were done a couple of years ago where telco call centre employees admitted in tears that they were forced to push and push products on people they knew had no need for them or could not even use (the folks with no computer). Many of these whistle blowers quit as they could not sleep at night knowing what they were doing to innocent folks.
