So Rogers will bring the iPhone to Canada. Don't expect such a rush here. Indeed, this article clearly lays out the travesty that is wireless access pricing in Canada: "Rogers has a long way to go before it matches the free data providers given to iPhone users in the United States and elsewhere. I don't browse the Internet over the Edge network, not only because it's slow but because, at its current rates, Rogers would charge me $75 simply to load The Globe and Mail's home page. If someone e-mailed me a five-megabyte attachment and I opened it on the Edge network, Rogers would bill me $250 for the privilege." This is why I won't even come close to touching a phone offered by Rogers. And, I will say, the other providers aren't much better. Wireless pricing in Canada is a farce.
