    Hi all

    I am planning to move to Canada. I would like to use my GSM blackberry 9360 and thinking of getting Rogers Pay as you go and add a 60MB BB plan. I mainly use my BB for email, but I have twitter, social feeds and bb map installed. I normally use voice 2 or 3 times a month for a few minutes and send 2 to 5 sms per month. I used to call IDD every 3 months, but I am willing to give it up. Anybody have a better carrier suggestion?

    You don't really have much of a choice in Canada. Unless you're going to live in (and never leave) Toronto, your only real choices are Rogers and Bell/telus. Both have very similar rates. Rogers has more overall coverage, but smaller 3G coverage.

    I am also planning to get a dedicated internet broadband for home use. Would it be cheaper for me over all if I just get unlimieted tethering service for my BB and Macbook?

    Stay away from Rogers as far as internet is concerned, they're a complete catastrophe.

    Ae you talking wired Internet? If so you're usually pretty limited depending on where you live. Bell offers DSL as do a handful of smaller companies. Rogers offers cable Internet in major centres, and some smaller companies offer cable in smaller centres. You usually only have 2 choices though: 1 DSL provider, 1 cable provider.

    Rogers has a no commitment month to month BlackBerry Plan for around $27 a month. I found the link. The price shows $36.75 with all fees.


    As for unlimited tethering/internet on a cell phone, I don't think that is offered in Canada on new activations.

    You can sometimes get a discount on the cell phone if you have the internet with the same company, but probably not off the cheaper plan I mentioned above and I think it is usually 10-15% off.

    Actually so much depends upon where in Canada you're planning on living. Where I live, the choices for "high speed" are limited to a wireless company [local] and a satellite company. The cable companies don't come down far enough on my road to be available. I imagine that availability of services varies slightly from province to province ... area to area.

    If, however, you are moving to a more urban centre, the above comments are very correct. Not a lot of choice in Canada!

    If you live in their service area Rogers is the best for High Speed Internet & LTE.
