Effective June 2010, the Saskatchewan Government 911 Fee that Fido customers pay will be increasing to $0.62 per month from the previously charged $0.38 per month.
The change will affect all Fido prepaid (Pay as you Go) customers and all Fido postpaid (contracts) customers that are being charged the system access fee/911 fee on previously offered Fido plans.
This also affects Fido customers who subscribed to a monthlyÂ price plan afterÂ November 4, 2008, as these customers will only beÂ charged the provincial 911Â fee or the municipal 911 tax (not all provinces in Canada charge this).
After November 4, 2008 Fido no longer charged the system access fee but local governments still had various 911 fees that customers paid.
