TORONTO, Feb. 19, 2014 /CNW/ - Rogers customers can get the newest smartphones even faster with Rogers Next™, an early upgrade program that will give subscribers the freedom to get a new premium device every 12 months for $0 down, with no early upgrade or connection fees.
"Our customers love experiencing the latest technology. They have an insatiable appetite for staying connected, entertained and accessing their favourite apps - all on their mobile devices," said John Boynton, executive vice president and chief marketing officer, Rogers Communications. "Rogers Next ensures early adopters never miss what's next by putting the hottest smartphones in their hands sooner."
Here's how it works:
- When you upgrade to a new device or join Rogers as a new customer, you have the option to subscribe to the Rogers Next program for a monthly fee of $24.99 or get the program with Rogers Device Protection Premium included for $29.99 - a device support service which retails for up to $11.99 per month;
- After 12 months, trade in your current device in good working order for a new smartphone of your choice that has a subsidized price of up to $250;
- You pay $0 down for the new device on a new two-year term, and your remaining FLEXtab™ balance and connection fees are waived;
- You then have the option to continue your enrolment in Rogers Next to get another new device in 12 months for $0.
At the time of upgrade, customers can choose from the largest selection of LTE-enabled devices including next generation Android™, Apple, BlackBerry® and Windows smartphones, all powered by Rogers LTE, Canada's fastest LTE network. Rogers Device Protection Premium is recommended for protection against loss, theft and damage, and provides added peace of mind when you upgrade with Rogers Next1.
Rogers Next will be available soon for existing and new customers. This early upgrade program is a part of Rogers Freedom Advantage, which offers customers data sharing, price match and free plan changes within tier.
