"listened to customer feedback" == anticipated customer backlash and competitors taking advantage of backlash

Subject: slightly off topic: Rogers Canada slashes data plan pricing
Customers who purchase an iPhone and sign up for a three-year
contract any time between July 11 â€“ when the device goes on sale
â€“ and the end of August will be eligible for a $30-per-month
data plan giving them access to 6-Gigabytes of data. Rogers
previously had charged $100 for a 6-GB plan.
Though mostly meant for the iphone, they say:
The special plan is available not just to iPhone customers,
but any Rogers customer with a 3G next-generation smart phone.
Though Rogers claims to have "listened to customer feedback", the article
One blog posting on AppleInsider.com, a popular Apple rumour
site, stated that Apple would divert some iPhone shipments that
had been earmarked for Rogers to Europe for punishment over the
negative publicity, leaving some Rogers outlets with as few as
10 iPhones to sell.
Time to get a USB 3G dongle that works on laptop and openmoko. Though getting
the 3G subscription might allow you the same rates on the 2G network perhaps?
