Rogers, Bell hike overage fees at time when customers thirst for wireless data
Each additional GB now costs between $10 and $20 more a month.
Both Rogers and Bell have hiked their data overage fees at a time when Canadians are thirsting for more wireless data.
When cellular customers hit their data cap, they can add more — usually at a steep price. For its new shared family plans, Rogers has increased its data overage charge by 40 per cent: from $5 to $7 for each additional one-tenth of a gigabyte. A full extra GB now costs $70 — a $20 hike.
