Rogers Set to Raise Cost of Wireless Connection Fee to $20


According to a report from MobileSyrup, Rogers is planning to increase the cost of its wireless connection fee to $20.

The charge, which is currently priced at $15, applies to all consumers and small business clients that request a hardware upgrade or activate a new phone line. The company claims that the adjustment in cost is a result of a regular pricing review.

“[The price adjustment is] to make sure we’re delivering the value our customers need.”

The report also notes that an internal email said that the company continues to strive to minimize fee changes as much as possible. Rogers says they are looking for innovative ways to better serve their customers.

Yesterday, Rogers announced its quarterly results where the Canadian carrier noted a three percent increase in wireless revenue to $1.9 billion. Currently, Rogers is still the largest carrier in with 9.45 million customers, even though they lost 58,000 customers in the last quarter.
