No wired connection, or wifi, or 3g subscription usually means no Internet right? Well not if you’re a Rogers Wireless customer with a data plan. A data plan with at least 1GB that is. Looks like Rogers has decided to extend it’s tethering program and make it a permanent fixture of data plans going forward. So no extra charges if you decide to use your smartphone as a wireless modem. Unless you are roaming in the U.S. then you’re shit out of luck. Hit up a Starbucks or McDonald’s I hear they have free wifi.
“The move is likely a reaction to the launch last fall of HSPA+ networks at Bell and Telus.” (link)
