Rogers Increases Evening Clock To 9PM On EPP Plan

In yet another fantastic (read: sarcasm) financial move in alienating (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6) their customers over the last few months, Rogers Wireless has put another nail into their coffin.

Effective July 3, 2009, the Rogers Wireless Insider EPP Plan will have its early evening clock that is currently at 6PM raised to 9PM. If you were looking to get this plan, you may want to get the new details.

You may recall back in April 2009, Rogers increased the monthly price of this plan from $17.50 to $20.00. Well now Rogers is increasing the evening clock from 6PM to 9PM. However, if you would like 6PM evenings, you can still have it, you only have to pay $7 more per month, a feature that was free. (Holds for applause)

Moreover, while the plan is still a 3 year contract, you get no voice minute bonus such as 1 or 2 or 3 months of free local calling. With other 3 year voice plans, you get 1 month of free calling, which itself used to be 3 months before April 2009.

The details are listed below:

  • Price: $20.00/month
  • Weekday Minutes: 200
  • Evenings/Weekends: Unlimited local minutes; evenings starting at 9PM
  • Contract Term: 3 Year
  • Included Features: Call Waiting, 3-Way Calling, Unlimited Received Text Messages
  • Early Evening Option: Add 6PM evenings for $7.00/month.
  • Note: Existing customers on this plan are unaffected

Is it just me or is the wireless industry one of the few industries that seem to be raising prices instead of lowering them in this current economy?

    This sounds like an out for anyone on a contract, as you can’t change the contract without agreement by both partes. If this were the US, you would have 60 days to drop the contract penalty free. Any lawyers about?

  • Matt

    Yeah I switched from 6gb data to the 35 plan with 500 mb and I checked the printout they gave me. They upped mycontract by 1 year on the data. I never agreed to thisand they nevertold me I could have walked out not knowing if I didn’t ask for a printout of my account. I didn’t sign anything so it’s not valid. Should be fun in 2 yrs when my voice contract is up lol.

    As the days pass I am considering more and more to drop my rogers plan and move on. 3 cell phones, TV and Internet should get me a good deal somewhere else.

    I asked for this plan but was told you can’t just be a member of air miles etc. You have to be an employee now of a corporation. If is possible to still get this I would like to know how.

  • It’s called harvesting your customer base before the competition kicks in ! I would expect many more like this one within the next fews months. Didn’t Bell follow the same path in the old days of long distance and local line deregulation ?

  • Ugh, hopefully they don’t pull this crap on the Fido side. Currently have the Fido EPP ($17.50/mo for 200 minutes billed per second, 5pm evenings, unlimited incoming texts).

    What if you already have this on your plan, will you lose it?

    not to mention its considered a corporate plan… so upgrades are only eligible every 2 years… and you can’t complete the upgrades on the store’s computer… you have to call it in. l.a.m.e.

    call and speak with customer relations. tell them that you want to switch to another provider and see what they offer. I was able to get the sweetest plan ever from my provider by doing that.

    This change doesn’t effect people already signed. This is a change to what’s being offered for new EPP customers.

    Legal, but way greedy.

    Hi,
    Just bought 32g 3GS with $45.00 Rogers plan 100+50 voice minutes and 500MB data
    I was surprised when i started receiving calls all with “Unknown Number”
    Apparently you have to pay an extra $8.00 per month to identify the incoming phone number

    I got this plan a year ago and they asked for my Aeroplan number. Now if I go to a Rogers Store they cannot see my account because it is “corporate”.

    Seriously we Canadians continue to get screwed over and robbed by these cellphone carriers. I can't wait until we open our market to foreign competition.

    I think the saddest thing about Rogers and even Bell is that these are both Canadian companies! It was Canadian laws that protected them from foreign competition, without Canadians these companies would not be where they are today. But instead of rewarding Canadians they have been screwing us. I can only hope that these companies change or go to hell.
