While the new fee apparently cannot be eliminated, even by Mr.Rogers, the carrier does have a heart. According to the memo, Rogers will actually cut the price of the Connection Fee for those new customers activating service or for existing customers upgrading to a new phone. The discounted fee will be $15 and will remain at that price until further notice. So that means for now, Rogers customers are saving $20 with the new rate.
If the leaked memo is legit, we should hear more from the mobile operator in the days ahead. Stay tuned!
