Leaked memo shows Rogers to start connection fee on July 10th
A leaked internal Rogers memo reveals that beginning July 10th, the Canadian carrier will be eliminating the $35 Activation Fee and the $35 Hardware Upgrade Administration Fee. Instead, new and existing customers will be billed a $35 Connection Fee to be activated onto the Rogers network. The new Connection Fee will be the same for new or existing customers and cannot be waived.

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!
