Who needs a Wi-Fi cafe anymore, as long as you are a customer of Rogers and have a 1GB Data plan, you get unlimited data tethering!

Rogers today revealed that its free data tethering promo is becoming a permanent fixture of its plans. The move gives anyone with a Canadian 1GB or larger data plan the option of using an iPhone or other tethering-capable smartphone as a 3G Internet connection for a computer without having to incur a separate charge. Any data used for tethering is simply taken out of the existing monthly transfer allowance, Rogers said.

This is great news for technicians out in the feild who would need access to corporate information, as long as you  have a signal you have internet access, mind you a 3G device would fair much better than an EDGE device. If you are using a blackberry device and do not see the option to teather, just upgrade you Blackberry Desktop Manager.
