SUBSCRIBERS TO PAY MORE AT ROGERS AND BELL

Two of the country’s biggest internet service providers are getting ready to increase their monthly subscriber prices.

Rogers Communications will raise prices for most of its current internet plans by $8 a month – starting Monday – and for its lowest-price plan there’ll be a smaller increase of $4 per month – on a package that delivers speeds of less than 20 megabytes per second.

In April, Bell Canada will increase its internet prices by $5 a month for Ontario customers – and by $3 a month for its Quebec customers.

Bell will also increase internet overage charges to $4 per extra gigabyte – from $3.

Both companies say the price adjustments will help fund improvements – in the capabilities and reach of their networks.
