Rogers Implements New "Government Regulatory Recovery Fee"

October 5, 2009
“The Government Regulatory Recovery Fee ranges from between $2.52 and $3.49 per line per month, depending on whether provincial 911 fees are applicable.” Also Rogers is throwing in some added value features for free: Call Forwarding ($3 value), WhoCalled ($3 value) and Call Manager ($5 value).

What is happening:
  • Rogers will no longer be charging the System Access Fee of $6.95, 911 Fee of $0.50 and Provincial 911 Fees (in selected markets) – a combined $7.45 to $7.98 per month.
  •  To offset the revenue loss associated with the above, Rogers is increasing the price of its rate plans by $5 per month and levying a new Government Regulatory Recovery Fee (ranging from $2.58 to $3.46 per month – depending on region) for a new total of $7.58 to $8.46 per month.
  •  Rogers has in fact increased their net prices to clients.
  • New clients will be automatically enrolled in the new pricing; existing clients may move to the new pricing model only by migrating to the new in-market rate plans.
Times are finally changing for us Canadians! Let’s just see some lower rates!
