Rogers Evolves Share Everything Plans to Address Growing Demand for Wireless Data and Internet

September 10, 2013

News Releases

Share Everything is the first complete wireless share plan for all
devices, now available to Canadians  

Customers seamlessly share data, voice and features across any 10
wireless devices – double the device add-ons of any other consumer
plans offered in Canada 

TORONTO, Sept. 10, 2013 /CNW/ – Rogers Communications today announced
the launch of Share Everything, Canada’s first complete wireless share plans that allow individuals,
families, friends or small businesses to share wireless data, internet,
unlimited nationwide talk and text, call display and voicemail across
any 10 wireless devices; supporting twice as many devices when compared
to other Canadian carriers. Building on Rogers data sharing plans that
have been available since 2009, Share Everything addresses the growth in wireless data and internet consumption among
Canadians and the increase in the number of connected devices per
Canadian household.

“A surge in data consumption means Canadians are looking for ways to
more easily manage and share data with friends and family across
different devices,” said John Boynton, executive vice president and
chief marketing officer, Rogers Communications. “We were the first
Canadian carrier to offer data sharing and family plans, and today
we’ve evolved them to deliver the most robust plans available from any
provider, allowing customers to add twice as many devices and to
maximize their potential on the Rogers LTE network, Canada’s fastest
wireless Internet.”

Since Rogers launched the first LTE network in Canada in 2011, wireless
data consumption has increased by 80 per cent year over year, a 2013
Rogers study revealed.  By 2017, there will be more than 49 million
connected smartphones and tablets in Canada, IDC forecasts show[1]. As wireless devices and network bandwidths get faster and more
advanced, consumers are more frequently accessing the internet on the
go at enhanced speeds. Rogers leads the market by offering the largest
selection of LTE-enabled devices and deploying more 2600 MHz spectrum
than any other Canadian carrier to provide customers with the fastest
wireless network speeds in the country.

Rogers Share Everything plans allow customers and small businesses to connect up to 10 wireless
devices – smartphones, talk and text phones, tablets, the Rocket™
stick, hub and mobile hotspot – to a single plan.  Customers choose the
data bucket that suits their needs and share that data across devices
for greater flexibility and savings.  Share Everything plans also include unlimited nationwide talk and text, call display and
voicemail.

Customers who bring their own device can save up to $20 on their monthly
Share Everything plan price or the cost of adding a line to their plan. Wireless Home
Phone service can be added to a Share Everything plan in select markets. For more details, visit www.rogers.com/shareeverything.
