: Paygo Wireless Web Increase

2010-02-09, 03:14 PM
I have a new Rogers Paygo phone (as of Christmas). What I loved it is has a decent browser available for it but is not classified as a Smart Phone so you don't have to pay ridiculous bandwidth charges for surfing. Unfortunately I was just notified the $7 a month unlimited browsing is now going up to $10 a month. I can't see paying $10 use a crappy slow browser on a tiny cellphone screen.

Is it just me or does it seem like all the Mobile fees have been going up not down with added competition hitting the market?

Yeah, Rogers is not winning any popularity contest with its customers or potential customers. Did you see what they've done with the Value Packs? More money - less content! :mad: They should take "Value" out of the name.

Lots of chatter around Telus raising prices too. Shows, I guess, the incumbets are not too concerned.

An independent market research study released to day forecat Rogers would still have a 37% market share in 2014 while Bell and Telus would each hold 29%. The study forecast that all the others would only have about 1 million between them. That's a far cry from the Wind/Mobilicity/Public Mobile business plans. Someone is going to be disappointed if the research plays out.
