    Take this with a grain of salt, but it looks like Rogers might be offering three data plans for the iPhone 3G:

    $30 for 300meg
    $60 for 1gig
    $100 for 6 gig

    Now, I highly doubt that this is even remotely accurate, but it is interesting. Let's say Rogers/Fido does go with something similar to this (please don't let this become a thread bitching about how awful data rates in Canada are, how Rogers would never do something like this, we've all heard it 1000 times before). I want to get my money's worth, but not pay too much.

    Focus: How much data do you use every month, and how much non-wifi surfing do you do?

    1 GB.

    Maybe 6 GB.

    YouTube movies are at most 30 MB (or was it 35?) on Wi-Fi. Unless you're watching the 10 minute long ones. That means you watch 10 YouTube movies, you're done for the month (and with 3G...the YouTube movies would probably be the Wi-Fi quality one).

    Heck if you watch YouTube a lot, then 1 GB isn't enough.

    Although if this is true, then my question is moot.

    That's pretty much the norm here. We have the worst/most expensive cell plans in the world, thanks to our government allowing one company to have a monopoly.
