Rogers prepaid brand Chatr appears to be increasing the price of legacy plans for current customers, as some have been notified via text message this morning a $5 per month price hike is coming.
According to iPhone in Canada reader Kyron, he received the following text message this morning from Chatr, which reads:
Important chatr service msg: On your next anniversary date of 07/19/18 your monthly service fee will increase by $5 per month. All other aspects of your service will remain the same. If you have any questions or wish to change / cancel your chatr service, please contact us at www.chatrmobile.com/con
Kyron is currently on an expired Mobilicity plan, which consists of $45 per month for 6GB of 3G data, along with unlimited in-zone Canada calling and U.S.-wide talk, to go with unlimited texting, voicemail and 30 minutes of Canada/USA voice roaming. After the price jump, he will be paying $50 per month for 6GB of 3G data. He says he has had two lines with Chatr since last fall, but only received a price increase text message on one line today.
Back in September 2017, Rogers announced customers on merge plans from Mobilicity were set to increase in price by $5 per month. It is unknown if this current price increase is a brand-new one, or part of that fall hike for legacy users. We’ve reached out to Rogers for clarification and will update this article accordingly.
