Rogers To Extend Tethering Promo… Surfers Rejoyce

I just got an e-mail from Rogers letting me know about an extension to a promo that allows you to tether your smart phone to a laptop so that you can surf the Internet anywhere:

The Rogers and Fido tethering promotion unveiled last summer is going to be extended into the new year.

The current promotion, originally set to expire December 31, provides tethering at no extra charge to those with a data plan/add-on of 1 GB or more with a compatible device. Data charges for tethering are deducted from the customer’s current data plan bucket.

This promotion has been extended for all existing customers until May 3, 2010. Customers who are currently eligible to use tethering can continue to do so at no extra charge until the promotion’s end date.

Details about tethering beyond the end of the promotion extension will be shared at a later date. Please note that this promotion is subject to change.

Sweet! Check the Rogers and Fido websites for details. The only thing that makes me pause is the fact that we’ll have to come back “at a later date” to see what Rogers has in mind for tethering. But until then, enjoy the tethering.
