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.
