Rogers/Fido Revise US & International Text Message Packages

Share: twitterTweet facebookShare

This week, Rogers and Fido have revised their US and International Text Messaging Travel packs. These packages are targeted toward travelers that may send a lot of text messages while using their iPhone outside of Canada and want to avoid paying excessive per message roaming fees.

These add-ons, like Caller Display and Voicemail, can be added to any iPhone plan.

However, the revision is rather odd considering typical Rogers/Fido behavior. While the prices were increased in the new packs, the amount of given text messages were also increased.

However the biggest change was there is now a separate designation for US Text Messaging packs and International Text Messaging packs.

So in a way, this is a positive change with increased messages, but now you pay two different fees for traveling text messages, where previously one fee covered both US and International.

Below is the previous package:

Below are the new packages:

  • For US text messages, previously for $10, customers could send 20 text messages with unlimited received. Now for $12.50, customers can send 25 text messages with unlimited received. A difference of $2.50 and 5 text messages.
  • For US text messages, previously for $20, customers could send 50 text messages with unlimited received. Now for $25, customers can send 100 text messages with unlimited received. A difference of $5.00 and 50 text messages.
  • For US text messages, previously for $35, customers could send 100 text messages with unlimited received. Now for $50, customers can send 500 text messages with unlimited received. A difference of $15.00 and 400 text messages.

So what do you think? Is there any value here?
