The amount of text messages us Canadians send increases every month. If you subscribe to a bundle of some sorts this news will not be worthy to you… but for those who don’t have a Rogers bundle and choose send texts overseas, then on May 4th you’ll be paying $0.10 more per text.
Rogers states on their site that “Effective May 4th, 2010, the rate for pay-per-use text messages sent from Canada to another country (other than the United States) will change to $0.35/message plus applicable taxes (previously $0.25/message). All other aspects of your wireless service will remain the same. The rate for text messages to the United States will remain at $0.25/message plus applicable taxes. International Text Messaging add-ons are not affected by the rate change noted above”.
So if you don’t want this to hit you hard, make sure you sign up for a package before May 4th.
