Canadian iPhone Users Protest Against Rogers Tariffs

Recently, the unveiling of new voice/data plans for the iPhone by Rogers/Fido was met with significant backlash.

A substantial number of over ten thousand individuals have expressed their dissatisfaction on a protest website titled “Rogers + iPhone3G == Ruined”.

Many Canadians are voicing their concerns regarding the steep pricing of these plans and the absence of a reasonably priced data option.

The website also provides contact details for Rogers/Fido and encourages consumers to voice their concerns through emails, letters, or phone calls.

The petition is filled with strong opinions, indicating that Rogers may be squandering the opportunity to nurture a burgeoning market by imposing high costs and inferior service.

If you’re from Canada, we’d love to hear your thoughts on these data rates.
