Every summer, we see the major carriers re-launch the $30 6GB data package, typically coinciding with the latest iPhone launch. Rogers and Telus are ahead of the game this year, with internal documents stating that they are each offering it up effective immediately. To get the package, you'll need to sign up for a new 3 year term or renew your current contract, as usual. Additionally, it must be added to a voice plan, and cannot be used as a stand-alone data only package. No word on exactly when the promotion will expire, but as always, you can expect it to be available for a limited time only. We'll likely see Bell follow suit in the near future, as the re-introduction of this plan is usually aligned among the major carriers.

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.

Rogers, Bell, and Telus offer up a 6GB data plan seasonally, usually corresponding with each year's iPhone launch, but now Videotron is looking to get in on the competition. They have recently introduced their own 6GB data plan, which is priced at $30 monthly. Unfortunately, the offer is listed as "available for a limited time", so if you're looking for more data usage allowance and are with the popular Quebec carrier, be sure to get ahold of them soon to add it to your account. With any luck, Videotron's introduction of this data package will put the pressure on other major carriers, and they too will re-introduce this type of package. Great job, Videotron!

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.

Virgin Mobile has been putting the pressure on their competition recently, offering up a variety of handsets and price plan discounts. Their latest move in an effort to retain more customers, and win over prospective customers, was to reduce their Smartphone data offerings by $5 a month, a much-needed discount with Canada's high-cost data services. The $5 monthly reduction is applicable to the 500 MB, 3 GB, 5GB, and Flexi-Data packages, and is available to both new and existing customers. Existing customers will have to call in to have their package changed, as the price reduction isn't being automatically applied to accounts. Great move, Virgin! Keep the price cuts coming!

Competition has been roaring in Canada when it comes to unlimited plans and offerings, and most carriers are doing their part by introducing affordable packages. Virgin Mobile is certainly no exception, as they have recently launched new $35 and $45 Unlimited plans. The $35 Unlimited City Calling Plan is available only for CDMA handsets, and only in major cities including Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto, Ottawa, and Montreal. It offers up unlimited local calling, along with unlimited Canadian, U.S., and international text messaging.

The $45 Unlimited Calling Plan is available for all handsets and in all locations (except Manitoba and Saskatchewan), and offers up unlimited local calling, unlimited Canadian, U.S., and international text messaging, along with call display. Additionally, any data or long-distance packages are eligible to be added on to the $45 plan, so it's a great starting point for customers looking to build a personalized solution. Both of these packages are officially available now, so get in contact with Virgin Mobile if you're interested!

We're seeing Canadian companies take advantage of smartphones and popular mobile platforms more and more, and it's nice to see UPS Canada joining in. The UPS application is now available for free on Android and BlackBerry, through either Market or App World. If you're someone who ships or receives a number of items via UPS, this app is great as it allows you to track packages, find UPS locations, and get quotes. Those with UPS accounts can also create shipments and send themselves shipping labels via e-mail for printing once on a computer.
