A little while back, we saw Videotron launch a $30/6GB data add-on, and it didn't take long for a variety of other carriers to follow suit in the province. Bell and Virgin Mobile began offering their Quebec subscribers the same package, and Telus also did the same. Now, Rogers is responding to the competition, and has also made their own $30/6GB add-on available for Quebec customers. Theirs, like the others, is available for a "limited time", and speculation points to a July 31st expiry date. It includes 6GB of data usage and unlimited Social Networking, and requires you to renew on a new 3 year term.

Likely in response to Videotron and Virgin's(Quebec-only) recent introduction of their $30/6GB data package, Telus has gone ahead re-introduced their own 6GB promo add-on for Quebec customers. It's unfortunate that the rest of Canada can't benefit from this recent competition, but it's still great to see carriers working to win customers over in some markets at least.

The 6GB add-on from Telus is available for all device types, including iPhones, and will work for both 4G and CDMA handsets. It is available to new, existing, and renewing customers, and overage charges come in at the standard 5 cents/MB. The package is being offered on a promotional basis only, and will no longer be available after July 31st, so be sure to contact Telus if you're interested in adding it to your line.

We just let you know that Virgin Mobile has reduced the cost of their data packages by $5/monthly, and now it's WIND's turn to crank up the competition. A few days ago, select non-data BlackBerry users began receiving promotional text messages offering them free data services until April 15th. The text message selected users are receiving reads: "Hey BlackBerry user?try FREE data with our Infinite BlackBerry add-on until Apr-15. Interested? Reply Y to this message and start browsing, BBM, email & more". WIND Mobile is currently one of the only carriers that haven't made data services mandatory for smartphones, but with their contract-free handset purchase structure, it doesn't come as much of a surprise that they're enticing customers with this promotion, rather than forcing them into data package subscriptions.

WIND Mobile has launched a pretty great promotion, offering up a free BlackBerry Pearl 9100 when you pick up a Bold 9700. Of course, an offer like this comes with some rules and requirements - the user must activate both devices, each on either the Nice Always Shout or the Always Talk plan, in addition to either the Infinite or Charged BlackBerry add-ons. Luckily, all of these plans/packages are 50% off if you sign up now, so not only do you get your second device (Pearl 3G) for free, you also get half off your monthly costs! This promotion is an in-store deal only, so head to your closest WIND Mobile location to take advantage of this offer.

New entrant Mobilicity has just launched their network in two more major cities today, Edmonton and Vancouver, and has officially confirmed the Ottawa launch will take place tomorrow. Along with the launch comes 100 retail outlets throughout Vancouver, and 20 locations in both Edmonton and Ottawa. This makes 5 cities for Mobilicity and should help them grow!

In addition to the new network launches, Mobilicity has also slimmed down their price plan line-up to just 3 packages. None of the price plans come with data, so customers who wish to get data access will have to subscribe to the new $10 data add-on. The 3 new price plans are:

$25/monthly: Unlimited Local Calling, Text and Picture Messaging, Caller I.D., and Mobilicity to Mobilicity Calling.

$35/monthly: Unlimited Local Calling, Text and Picture Messaging, Caller I.D., Mobilicity to Mobilicity Calling, Voicemail, Call Waiting, Call Forwarding, 3 Way Calling, and Province Wide Long Distance.

$45/monthly: Unlimited Local Calling, Text and Picture Messaging, Caller I.D., Mobilicity to Mobilicity Calling, Voicemail, Call Waiting, Call Forwarding, 3 Way Calling, Province Wide Long Distance, Canadian Long Distance, U.S. Long Distance, and Global Text Messaging.

Mobilicity is on a roll lately with their discounted handsets, price plans, and add-ons, and now they're offering up an amazing deal for friends and family of their employees. The new program, which is intended for those who know Mobilicity employees, gives users the option between 2 highly discounted plans - the $45 unlimited plan for just $25/month, and the $65 unlimited plan for just $35/month. If you know someone who works for Mobilicity, make sure to get in touch with them and ask about this amazing program, as they're probably the cheapest and most value-filled options available (as long as you're in a Mobilicity coverage zone). With all of these amazing deals, all that's left for the new entrant is expansion into more cities, which we'll hopefully see in the near future.

We recently let you know that Mobilicity has plans to launch the Google Nexus One, and now they've updated their site to include an unlimited data add-on! The new add-on, which costs $20 per month, provides "truly unlimited" data usage to customers within Mobilicity coverage zones. The new package can be added on to any existing price plan, so users won't have to spend a certain amount each month to be eligible. Nice work, Mobilicity!

Solo Mobile is a getting a full-blown relaunch to compete with new and existing discount brands such as Mobilicity and Chatr, with the overhaul expected to take place during the week of August 16th. While further details have been few and far between, we do know that the brand name and logo will remain the same, though the majority of the handset line-up will be changed. The new devices will more than likely be a fairly even mix of HSPA and CDMA handsets, though CDMA will be phased out as with parent company Bell. Six new price plans are expected to be released, varying in price from $10 - $60, with optional add-ons available as well. Lastly, Solo will be launching a prepaid internet stick, though which model or pricing is still unknown.
