Has anyone noticed the new home phone packages and prices on the Rogers Website? As an example, the Basic Value Plan is now known as the Essentials plan. The Basic Value Plan cost $23.95 per month (no extras) and included 250 North American long distance minutes every month. The Essentials plan cost $26.50 per month (no extras or long distance included). This is a 10% increase in price. However, if you also want long distance (500 minutes instead of 250) the cost is $36.50 per month - a 52% increase in price (albeit with an extra 250 long distance minutes). Similar increases have also affected the other two plans, now known as Favourites and Deluxe! How does Rogers justify this? Once again it is the Rogers double whammy! Take something away AND increase the cost!
