Today Bell announced a handful of new unlimited talk and text plans for Canadians. Surprise! They're pretty much identical to the ones we've seen from Rogers, which have coincidentally also gone public today. Here's what you get on Bell starting November 9.

  • $55/month: 1000 minutes, unlimited text and MMS, 200 MB broadband data
  • $65/month: unlimited local talk, unlimited text and MMS, 1 GB broadband data and 10 hours of Bell MobileTV
  • $75/month: unlimited local talk, unlimited text and MMS, 3 GB broadband data and 10 hours of Bell MobileTV
  • $95/month: unlimited Canada-wide talk, unlimited text and MMS, 5 GB broadband data and 10 hours of Bell MobileTV

Rogers, starting today?

  • $55/month: 1000 minutes, unlimited text and MMS, 200 MB data
  • $65/month: unlimited local talk, unlimited text and MMS, 1 GB data
  • $75/month: unlimited local talk, unlimited text and MMS, 3 GB data
  • $95/month: unlimited Canada-wide talk, unlimited text and MMS, 5 GB data

Is it just me, or is there a shocking lack of honest competition between the big carriers in Canada? Now we just have to wait to see if TELUS will follow suit. Update: Aaaaand there it is. Slightly different mix. Includes caller ID, voicemail, and unlimited family calling on all three, but you pay five bucks more.

  • $70/month: unlimited local talk, unlimited text and MMS, 1 GB data
  • $80/month: unlimited local talk, unlimited text and MMS, 3 GB data
  • $100/month: unlimited Canada-wide talk, unlimited text and MMS, 5 GB data

Anyone interested in the new plans can hit up Bell and Rogers, though Bell's plans aren't live yet. Or you can just hold out for another 6 GB/$30 promo, or better yet, switch to WIND or Mobilicity.
