Rogers sucks and so do System Access fees
From all the coverage that Rogers has got about how bad they treat us Canadians, I’m sure it’s got the marketing geeks heads spinning. They’re probably wondering if all this bad press is going to get them more subscribers or less, because it’s not obvious. They’re probably asking themselves, what would have happened if they just priced the data at $30/6GB up front. Would they have avoided the controversy, or would everyone have been just as unhappy with that plan. What if they waited for all the crazy early adopters to wait in line and pay a premium for being first, and then reduce the price a couple months later. What if they did nothing at all? I’m not sure, but there are some facts. Canada has some the highest priced cell phone plans in the world. Part of the reason is a “System Access Fee” that we all pay. David McGuinty, Member of Parliament, Ottawa South, is looking for support for his bill C-555 which will do away with the System Access Fee. If you agree, sign the petition.
