Fido To Increase 911 Fee To $0.75 On April 12, 2010

Just like how Rogers is increasing their 911 fee from $0.50 to $0.75, Fido is now doing the same.

Navigating over to the 911 fee area of the Fido website , visitors will notice that effective April 12, 2010 Fido will be increasing their monthly charged $0.50 911 fee to $0.75 per month.

Do note that this change only affects existing Fido customers who are still on an older price plan. In other words, if you subscribed to Fido after November 4 2008 or have one of the newer Fido plans after that date, then this change does not affect you.

But, if your wireless invoice has a “System Access Fee” and “Emergency Access Fee” charge on it, the Emergency Fee is increasing to $0.75 from $0.50 per month.

    I remember the good old Fido before robbers took them over never used to screw around customers now look at them

  • Amazing what Robbers does to people, eh?

  • I also loved Fido when they were under the ownership of Microcell. Those
    were the days. They had some incredible monthly voice plans and so many
    people switched over.

    Would this count as a Contract change that one might not agree to, to get out of a Contract? At the very least, you don't have to pay the increase for the duration of your contract.

    From Rogers' Website, Terms & Conditions:
    “15. Rogers may change these terms, and any aspects of the services, upon notice to you. If you do not accept a change to these terms, your sole remedy is to retain the existing terms unchanged for the duration of your commitment period. If you do not accept any other change to aspects of the services, your sole remedy is to terminate.”

  • I don't think so because the fees are not bound by contract, just the voice plan

    Yet another sneaky way to get customers off their old plan, and onto a new, more profitable one. Straight from the BellTV handbook!
