The data is taken out of the monthly transfer allowance. There are some limits, however, such as not being able to use it with US data roaming plans or the shared plans for family and 3G modems. This puts Rogers in line with Bell and Telus. Wonder if this will put a fire under AT&T to do the same since it has been over a year since they promised "coming soon" hasn't it? Somehow I doubt it, what are your thoughts?</p>
