Telecommunications giant Bell Canada this week began notifying consumers that it is raising phone, internet and television rates in the New Year.

Effective January 1st, 2012, Bell is raising television rates by $3 a month, phone rates by $2 a month and internet rates by $2 per month plus the maximum usage overage fee will be increased by $20.

The move comes just seven months after Bell hit Internet and Fibe TV customers with a $3 per month increase in Ontario and between $1 and $3 per month in Quebec.

For Bell customers using all three services, the increase could amount to as much as $30 per month in one year!
