Rogers has a plethora of business and have their hands in radio, magazines, TV, home security, internet and also own a number of sports teams. From a wireless perspective they are leading the nation with over 9.4 million subscribers across the Rogers Wireless, Fido and Chatr Wireless brands.

Curious what compensation it takes to lead a company like Rogers? Well, Rogers just issued their proxy circular for year-end 2013 and the executive team were paid a total of $48,971,630. This includes base salaries, shares and bonuses. Most of the payout was dedicated to former President and CEO Nadir Mohamed at $26,769,973 (54.7%). New CEO Guy Laurence, who came on board December 2nd, earned $12,699,997 in the form of a base salary, shares and a signing bonus of $750,000.

Other 2013 executive compensations reveals:

Anthony Staffieri, EVP and CFO, earning $2,563,564
Robert Bruce, President of Communications earning $2,255,235
Edward Rogers EVP, Emerging Business & Corporate Development earning $1,920,516
Keith Pelley President of Media, earning $1,805,345.

The chart below shows a breakout of the last 3-years and it looks like majority of the executive team has had the same salaries, but an increase in shares.

    time to raise rates again.

  • Phi Nguyen

    Yep they should cut bonuses till they earn more customers thru cuts in rates

    • Buttocks

      Yeah I should cut my bonuses when my company is already doing extremely well. Yes, not as good as last year but by no means are they still not great numbers.

      They don’t need to cut rates because despite prices being high, customers are still not flocking to Wind. Wind is NOTHING to the Big 3.

    • Jay

      Interestingly enough, that $48,971,630 spread out over Rogers’ 9.4 million customers would result in an average annual savings of only $5.20.
      The part that gets me is that the executives are making millions over millions while I, as a retailer, am face to face with their customers and qualify for financial aid to help keep food on my table for my kids. This is even as a manager after 3 years…

      Even those shifty pyramid schemes start looking appealing when I see that my big bosses are making that much money while I’m getting paid peanuts.

    • Chris

      Fair enough. I’ll take over and only take $8 million in pay/bonus/stock. That’s $4 million in savings I can forget to pass onto Rogers customers! ;)

  • Surveillance

    Stay in school kids!

  • Matt

    Thats exactly why big 3 rip customers off with ridiculously high prices, so that the executives can earn million dollar paychecks, and live in million dollar houses and drive lamborginis, while the average consumer can barely afford to pay all these ridiculously high prices. The reason why Wind mobile is doing well, is because they offer real value to the consumer. And instead of paying their executives million dollar paychecks they pay them a reasonable paycheck, so they won’t rip off their customers. Take the executive pay and spread it around to the customer and give them value. Its insane that this is exactly why cellphone bills are so high, its to pay these ridiculous paychecks for executives at Rogers. I’m a happy Wind Customer cause Wind treats me with respect and gives me value for my money

    • Patrick Polish

      What you are saying doesn’t make any sense. First off, wind is so cheap because they rent most of their signal and in results, have poor coverage, low quality signal and slow internet (compared to LTE). My mom has wind and the signal barely penetrates the house, every time she is home, most of the calls go straight to voice mail.

      Second, your comment really shows a lack of understand in micro-economics. You, and I and everybody else knows that the top execs of every major company make million of dollars. Even if you took all the money they made and split in equally between every customer, it would barely make a mark on the bill. Under 5$ in savings. You can very easily make 4-6 times those saving just by calling the retention department and negotiating a better deal.

      I pay 80$ a month, which is about 1.5 to 2x more than a wind customer, but i get coverage everywhere, and i get the occasional perk like a 50$ pre-paid mastercard, or a 250$ watch for 50$, or maybe all NHL games on my phone for nothing and i have LTE everywhere i go nationwide. I also, for that price get an extra LTE sim for my Nexus 7. Sure, 40$ per month is OK for most consumers, but everybody still has a choice. It isnt ripping off if you consciously choose to go with one of the big 3 instead of the wind and mobilicity. You chose money over reliability, but the fact is, wind service kinda sucks. Even in montreal, which is the second largest city in the country, the signal is not comparable to Bell, Telus or Rogers. You pay for what you get.

      As for regulation, it’s up to the governement to regulate that, and as far as i can tell, they are making a difference. Now, go on any american carriers site and compare their service with ours, you’ll see that we are not getting ripped off as much as you think

    • Matt

      your comment doesn’t make any sense my friend. Just cause you pay $80 a month doesn’t mean you get any better service than Wind mobile can offer. Every carrier has dead zones at different parts of the city.

      for example. I had Telus before I switched to Wind. I had no signal in my brothers house. no signal on main floor, no signal in basement. And at m house only 1 bare on my floor. With Wind mobile at my bros house full bars and phone works perfectly. In my house with Wind I get full bars and phone works a lot better than I was with Telus. With Telus I got a lot of no Connection issues while using data. And a lot of buffering issues using You Tube or trying to download apps. With Wind Data I get full working data. And I find no difference in Data speed as I had with Telus.
      Like I said before every carrier has different dead spot areas in the city.
      And for me I don’t care about LTE as LTE is only a name gimmick and I don’t find any difference in Data speed from 3g or LTE. I find 3G is perfectly fine for me.
      I’d prefer to pay $30 bucks a month on Wind Mobile and get true unlimited data and voice and text. And not pay $80-100 a month for the same kind of service for a lot less features, and a pitiful 500mb of data from big 3 hahahaha lmao lol how lame is big 3.
      And for me Winds Ottawa zone is big enough for me as i’m 90% in ottawa for me cell service. The other 10% I don’t mind roaming for only 2 weeks of the year as I go to the cottage, and phone is off anyways to enjoy my vacation time.

    • William Z. 

      I hope I will have similar Wind experience like you when I switch to Wind~~

    • Patrick Polish

      Good for you. Still, you haven’t brought up the fact that you have no reason to be pissed at anything because the big 3 are certainly not screwing you, or anybody else for that reason because everybody has choice. We’re not in north korea here, if you’re not happy with the service or the price, you can change, there are no more cancellation fees so nobody has a reason to stay with Rogers, or telus or any other.

    • It’s Me

      They screwed their shareholders out of millions. All those rogers employees that were laid off over the last couple years should feel sort of screwed too…a yacht or two less for the handful of guys at the top might have saved their jobs.

    • William Z. 

      1. Actually Rogers have had messed up my bills more than 3 times from 3.00 to 300+ each time. 2.I just don’t see how &60-80 with 500MB make any sense. 3. There is $12.50 cancellation fees per line(+taxes). 4. I agree with you that people can always switch if not happy.

    • Patrick Polish

      Call up retention man. I negotiated an 80$ 10GB + extra line for data + unlimited everything else. These prices are usually for new customers. You can very well call that department and deal with them for something better.

    • Matt

      Its pretty clear bud, you work for Rogers, we get it, your trying to make your employer happy by doing marketing for them

    • William Z. 

      FYI, there is NO wind coverage in Montreal. Wind customers will roam in of the big3’s networks if they are in Montreal. Guess you’re either a very loyal Rogers customer or working for them.

    • Patrick Polish

      Exactly my point…second largest city in the country.

    • William Z. 

      “the signal is not comparable to Bell, Telus or Rogers” So, it’s not comparable where Wind don’t have signal but others have. That’s my point.

    • Matt

      its not Wind mobile’s fault for not having coverage in Montreal, they didn’t get spectrum in the last auction several years ago, it went towards videotron.

    • Patrick Polish

      and yes, i am a loyal rogers customer. Been with them for 8 years and i’ve never had the impression of being ripped off at any point. Only great service.

    • It’s Me

      Sound more like a well indoctrinated employee that’s been trained in what to think and say.

      All of your posts bear a striking similarity to the scripts of selling points and FUD that are distributed to front line Rogers CSRs. It’s honestly like you are pasting straight from the Rogers training guide…weird.

      Hopefully, if the execs need a new yacht, you get to keep that binder when you get the pink slip.

    • Patrick Polish

      I’m just a guy that studied in business school and i understand how business works. As for the wind coverage in montreal, there is a little something called signal density, which is why a budget company has a small butget for low density signal. So out of 10 towers in the area, wind only rented 1. (not exact numbers, but an example of how it works)

    • William Z. 

      Regardless of what we’ve discussed, I enjoy to discuss wireless topics with others. I am gonna try to negotiate a deal like what you get. Hope I didn’t offend you with what I said, not mean to~~

    • Patrick Polish

      not at all. it was a civilized discussion. As for your retention issue, insist on the fact that youre a student that lives alone with no home phone and has to pay bills and tuition. You can tell then you need data because you have a laptop in a school with poor wifi coverage, and you need talk time because you have no other way of communicating. Always be polite, try to put a little humour in the conversation without sounding too desperate. If the guy at the other end likes you, you’ll strike gold. Also, refuse to speak to anybody other than a retention agent. Customer service reps know why people call retention and they will try to sell you on a regular plan a bit more tailored than what you have, but they simply dont have the option in their system to give you anything really juicy that will keep you from switching, so dont even bother with them. Also not a bad thing to do a little research before, metion that Wind have great plans for 40-50$ with unlimited data and talk time, also try to go on the direct competitions sites (bell telus and rogers) and see if they have something that they have that your current carrier doesnt. Retention agents can do a lot of thing for you to keep you on their side. Also, if you have rogers, you can mention my exact plan, Talk & Text unlimited 45$ + 10GB shared 50$ + Option package 12.50$ at 50% off. My plan totals 107.50$ pretax, but the retention department have let me keep my plan with a 35$ monthly discount. So what i’m saying is, if you like your actual plan, you can ask them for a monthly credit instead of a full retention plan.

    • Patrick Polish

      Don’t bee too greedy, and don’t accept any first or second offers from the retention department. Once you try that, come abck and post your results

    • William Z. 

      wow, what you have is really great. I am currently on the $25 (after $5 monthly credit) with just 200 daytime local min. I am thinking to get a nationwide ult talk with 500MB to 1G data. Just don’t know what is the buttom line for Rogers, any ideas? I sign a 3 years contract in Aug. 2012. I switched to current plan without paying any penalty because of a mistake a rep made.

    • Patrick Polish

      I dont really, i tend to have always spent at least 80$ a month since day 1. I’m a tier 1 customer, which means i’m in the highest paying portion. I dont really know how low they can go or how they will treat a tier 3. If youre willing to pay a little more, maybe 50$, im sure you can get a decent plan with at least 1gb and unlimited nationwide. You can always know what tier you are by signing up for rogers rewards, which also gives you points you can exchange for plan extras. Check it out with them directly.

    • Omis

      The irony is you are asking customers not to be greedy when Rogers can clearly offer better deals than they are offering. I’ve got better things to do than haggle every time my contract comes up. If they can offer me those deals through their retention department, they can offer them right off the bat. Between that and having to call them every other week to fix a mistake on my bill is why I left Rogers.

      Been with Wind now for 3 years. Never had any issue with them. And my bill has been the same price.

    • Patrick Polish

      in case you dont understand the concept of retention, you have to be an existing client. The longer the client, the more leverage to have a better plan. If not, go fly with the wind

    • Matt

      Nice Rogers sales pitch by a loyal Rogers employee like you Patrick. Its obvious your a rogers employee spilling all this marketing spin and sales pitch on a Rogers online blog post

    • It’s Me

      Seems like Rogers hiring standards have fallen…at least Patrick seems to demonstrate they have…

      only the best and the brightest, said no one in Rogers HR ever.

    • Patrick Polish

      Do you think a rogers employee would give you a trick on how to get plans for lower prices?

    • Techie01

      Don’t understand when somebody is happy with their service he needs to be indoctrinated? all people with Wind seem to drink kool aid anyways by your standards. Also i’ve actually been a Wind cusotmer for 3 months and its a joke i couldn’t get service half the time and i was all over the GTA, i have Rogers and My wife has Telus and we have no signal issues in GTA. To the Guy that says LTE is a gimmick and 3G is fast enough i hope your running 56K modem at home cause you don’t need anything else..

    • It’s Me

      I’m not sure if you’ve ever called into Rogers to suggest you are going to leave for one of the smaller carriers. Try it. You will find they use a script that details things that a normal person would not consider or at least not consider worth mentioning. It’s usually one part sales pitch, one part fear mongering and misinformation and a healthy dose of arrogance and are usually quite recognizable as a script.

      Read his post again and see if it doesn’t stand out this time. If you’ve dealt with Rogers on these issues, at all, then it will be pretty obvious. Unfortunately, Rogers has taken it upon themselves in the last couple years to not only hire employees and 3rd parties to shill for them in public forums, but many of their employees take to the forums to preach the gospel as well. The honest ones at least admit they are employees.

    • Matt

      you don’t have an impression of being ripped off cause clearly after all this marketing hype your doing for Rogers is because you work for them

    • Nexzen

      So you got married to Rogers… I got it. Its in his vows not to hate Rogers or ever feel ripped off. I understand now.

    • Carlos Dudas

      Clearly you don’t travel to northern Alberta.

    • It’s Me

      Shareholders should be pissed at that level of pay. Just 6 people took $49million out of the company, money that could have been used to reinvest into the company or to pay the owners through dividends.

      “The telecommunications company reported that net income dropped to $307 million or 57 cents per share from $353 million or 68 cents per share a year earlier.”

      Net income for this last quarter dropped $46 million YOY. That’s horrible. That huge drop could have been significantly mitigated by lower pay for just the top 5-10 employees. Shareholders should be pissed.

    • Patrick Polish

      Generated $2.0 billion of pre-tax free cash flow in 2012, supporting the significant cash returned to shareholders during the year. Increased annualized dividend per share 11% from $1.42 to $1.58 in 2012.Repurchased 9.6 million Rogers Class B shares for $350 million. Rogers profited almost 500M$ in 2013, so 10% of that goes to paying top exec salaries which is in the average payout for oligopolies. Is that a lot? YES! Is that too much? Well ask yourself if you were at the head of a 1.2B$ operating profit company, would you be happy? Would the people at the bottom of the food chain be happy? Well as usual, if you dont understand micro-economics, i guess you can blabber all you want. But as i mentionned, 50M$ / 10M subscribers would save us 60$ per year…yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!

    • It’s Me

      10% went to 6 people.

    • Patrick Polish

      If they hold majority shares, why in the hell should it go to anybody else? Why would the old CEO of rogers have 10x more dividends than the current CEO? It’s called shares, because he owns 10x more! :)

    • It’s Me

      Seriously? Your argument is that they used their positions as executives as large shareholders to ensure they were able to siphon off a massively disproportional amount of profits into their own pockets? “We don’t have enough for a larger dividend this year because we drained the tank…which is ok because we have more shares”.

      What business school is it you said you went to? Do they not require a basics ethics course in 1st year anymore? Do they offer remedial courses? They are prepping you for jail time.

    • Patrick Polish

      John Molson. One of the top business schools in the country. You should maybe take a few business classes, maybe you would understand how business works.

    • It’s Me

      Great. If I go, is an ethics class optional? Or is that passé there?

    • Patrick Polish

      Ethics is what your parents should teach you. If you need a school to do that for you, might as well jump off a bridge now.

    • It’s Me

      Interesting perspective.

      Business ethics have been a core course are even the lowliest of business schools for decades. That you aren’t aware of that says a lot.

    • Patrick Polish

      there are 2 types of people in life. Employers, and employees. You, are def an employee.

      Business ethics 101

    • Matt

      well your an employee as well Patrick, employed by rogers to flood online blogs with rogers marketing and sales pitches to make rogers look better.

    • It’s Me

      There are also the unemployed. You strike me as that group.

      At least you managed to spell Molson right. Really bolsters your credibility and believability :D

      Wannabes are always hilarious. So desperate.

      From your writing style and limited grasp of the subject, I’d guess you did 1 out of a 2 year busadmin program at a cc. I tutored guys like you. Lowest common denominator, wannabe mogul…now answering phones at Rogers :D

    • Patrick Polish

      nice try loser. Unfortunately not good enough to regain any smartness you lose with your d*****s comments. Hows that from a rogers employee

    • It’s Me

      It is exactly what I would expect from a Rogers employee.

      “Best and the brightest”

      Guess I got a little to close to home and hit a nerve :D

    • Patrick Polish

      nop, just wanted to prove to you that i think you<re a dumb F**k, something that a rogers employee would not say

    • It’s Me

      Heh.

      Tantrums are exactly what I’d expect from the type that Rogers hires.

    • Patrick Polish

      butthurt

    • It’s Me

      You sure seem to be.

      You’re too easy Pat. Not to bright but easy all the same ;)

    • Jerry Ryan

      but you used to right? ;) ;) ….”In my younger days, Call center jobs were my specialty, i explain well, i can calm people down and offer great customer service. Bell, Videotorn and Rogers were some of the tech companies i worked for. ” -Patrick Polish 5 months ago

      All good though I agree with your business based facts. Sad that it is that kind of money 46+million that could potentially help people in real need in the world. not consumers! we have choice.

    • Patrick Polish

      Yup, i sure used to. Thats why i know the inside out of business and why rogers is probably the best of the Big 3. Did i ever deny that i used to work for Rogers? No. I just deny that i dont currently work for them and never will. Getting paid 15$ an hour, no thanks, i’m not a teenager any more. Plus, this was about 7 years ago.

    • It’s Me

      So, you moved up the employment ladder…that’s awesome.

      Can I get some fries with that?

    • abc123

      I took business classes in university. Patrick is right, they dropped ethics 101 simply because it is not relevant anymore. Instead, to make up for the missing credits, they introduced Greed 101. In fact, like some that major in economics, you can now major in Greed.

    • Matt

      you went to a top business school to now work for rogers

    • Matt

      Nice spin of info from a rogers employee Patrick

    • Alexandre

      50M$ / 10M gives 5$ per user and bonus are per year, not month so 5$ / 12month gives about 42 cents so that’s the amount of your monthly bill that goes to the executives. BUT that is if we only take the wireless but Rogers has much more than this. So is it really that much? Even if they would do it for charity, it wouldn’t change plans price. Let’s say wireless represent 25% of their profit, then it would mean about 10 cents of your monthly bill goes to the executives. The millions they got may seem a lot but compared to the United-States, it’s nothing, they have higher bonus per profit/user/revenue/growth/… than Canada.
      Everything is relative

    • Zed Eph

      You keep mentioning microeconomics like you have a grasp on it… so, please explain which section this wage&public impact issue would fit into. Your posts in this thread exude stupidity beyond any I have witnessed… If someone solely learned 1+1=2, it doesn’t make them a mathematician–you keep alluding to
      “micro-economics” without providing any substantive analysis. Either do so, or stop trying to act like you know everything about it.

    • Patrick Polish

      im sorry but im not a teacher. If you wish to learn about microeconomics of a company level, you can go back to school.

    • Zed Eph

      Haha… *sarcasm begins* no I was hoping to learn about the MICROeconomics of a “country level” */sarcasm ends* Now I know you are a troll with absolutely no undestanding of what you mention. I’d recommend you go to school, but doubt you will learn anything. Please continue being fodder to the corporate framework, you pathetic basely creature.

    • Omis

      Except the shareholders that matter are doing this in their own company. They don’t want to rock the boat.

    • It’s Me

      All shareholders matter, just most don’t have influence. The large institutional investors should be wondering why a huge percentage of their long awaited millions in dividends went to 6 amigos instead.

    • abc123

      This is the logic of a typical Rogers employee:

      “It’s hardly a mark on the bill, so it’s okay to pay the executive insane amounts of money”.

      Reality: Most Rogers front line employees will not make IN THEIR LIFETIME, what the top executive makes IN 1-2 YEARS. Think about what these execs have done in that year to justify it.

      “Our service is not much different that what the American’s offer”

      Reality: What about Europe, Japan, and South Korea? Just because the US has similar pricing, does it mean we have to do the same thing? Are we American or Canadian? When the Americans say “JUMP!” do we say “HOW HIGH?” How about we do something for a change and beat the Americans at their game of capitalism?

      Sorry to say, but I’m glad you pay $80 to the big three. Too bad it’s not more, but I guess you realize that you’ve had to make some compromises as well.

    • fruvous

      What do you mean Wind “rent most of their signal”? They own their portion of spectrum and they run their own towers.

    • Patrick Polish

      in toronto and ottawa, and a small portion of that. Just look at their coverage map, most of the orange is signal rented from the competition

    • fruvous

      Obviously you don’t know how Wind or the zones work. The roaming zone costs extra to use.

    • Patrick Polish

      WTF does that have to do with anything. I said they rent out most of their signal, they do. Now STFU

    • Chris

      Just give up man… you can’t reason with these people, it’s like banging your head against a steel door of ignorance…

    • Patrick Polish

      Yeah i know. Bunch of i****s.

    • fruvous

      They do not rent anything. It’s called roaming. So by your thinking I guess Bell rents all of their western service and Telus rents all of their eastern service.

    • Jerry Ryan

      A+ reply but, we have Wind in Montreal?

  • Super_Deluxe

    Executive salaries first, customers second. Welcome to the Big 3 business plan!

  • AReid

    Good for them.

  • Leeg

    I want to be a rogers executive when I grow up

  • wildspin

    I feel sorry for those showing up in the “fair for Canada” campaign. How much did the Big 3 pay for their “performance” in the TV commercial?

  • Rolek

    You can rant however you want, nothing will change. Private company. They can do whatever they want.

    • Me Ted

      Too bad the BIG 3 built networks that were heavily subsidized by both provincial governments and/or the federal government at one time or another. That doesn’t sound so “private” to me. Yet they continue to bend us over as if they had the right.

    • Rolek

      They still do whatever they want.

    • Carlos Dudas

      No not necessarily, when dealing with what could be considered an essential service. I guess the real question is; is access a human right? And is it a right of a private company to degrade service to force price guarantees.

    • Rolek

      This is not a an essential service. It is a luxury service.

    • Rolek

      Mobile phones in Canada are a luxury, not essentials. Basic phone line would be IMHO.

  • Scotiaman1

    I smell a price increase again :'(

  • Buttocks

    I don’t feel ripped off at all. I CHOOSE to pay $75 -$90 per month. I think everyone forgets that cell phone service is not a right, it is a priviledge. You are not entitled to anything. You have a choice to be with the Big 3 or don’t be with them. I am not happy that rates increase as well but I stick with them because I work to afford it and cut back in other things in life if I have to. I live within my means and not beyond it. If I lost all my money tomorrow, yeah I wouls go on Wind and understand that my signal would be alright/not that great…..again living within my means.

    I work in retail and just like the people that complain about how expensive name bramds are, then buy no name brands. Don’t buy name brand and then complain about it after.

    • Tornado15550

      Ok, would you CHOOSE to pay $200 per month? What if one day Robellus charged you $500 per month for 50MB of data? Would you still CHOOSE to pay it? What’s the bottom line? Should we allow Robellus to continue to increase prices (and reducing data caps) indefinitely?

    • Buttocks

      If I made x amount yes I would CHOOSE to pay it because I have a CHOICE. If I did not make x amount I would CHOOSE to go on Wind. It is that simple. I would be living within my means.

      The bottom line is this. I am going to answer your question with a question. Should we allow the TTC to continue to raise fares with decrease in services and a hiring freeze of TTC bus drivers indefinitely?

    • Matt

      I make x amount of money probably way higher than you, but I get to keep x amount of money in my pocket to use x amount of money on other important things. And I’d prefer to pay $30 per month and have unlimited everything and have the exact same service as a big 3 would charge $100 per month for only 500mb of data for exact same service. economics 101. you will save $70 per month, thats $840 per year you’ll save and could go towards a brand new phone in a purchase outright without a contract. And get the same exact service. A phone makes a call either on company A or B, but why pay $100 on company A if you can pay $30 on company B to make the exact same call

      What does economics have to do with my freedom of CHOICE to decide that I want to pay that much for cell phone service that I think is better? To me better is better signal in and out of Toronto and to me better is faster download speeds.

      For you to say you make “x” amount more than me and trying to gloat about it shows that you feel above me as a person and look down on me. If you drove a car and I took the public transit I guess that makes you better than me? If you drove a car and I walked the same distance does that mean you should start walking too because why pay for a car when you can walk? Is that still “economics 101″? No it is your choice to pay and drive and that is my argument.

      You’re pretty awful in the grammar department too.

      haha another big 3 employee here putting a spin on why big 3 is ok and better. And there is absolutely nothing wrong with Wind mobiles signal. If anything its the same if not better than big 3. I had signal issues with Telus before I switched to wind. And I find wind mobile to be better

    • Buttocks

      Haha “another big 3 employee”. What a typical stereotypical answer. Just because I do not agree with the majority I am classified into a certain group by you. You sir are nothing more than an internet troll who cannot accept the opinion of others

      I think that in 2014, it’s hardly a choice. You’re expected to have a cell phone. And don’t be silly, these big companies are treating bandwidth like fresh water. We shouldn’t have to diminish our quality of life to have access to technology.

    • Buttocks

      I think that in 2014, it’s hardly a choice. You’re expected to have a CAR. And don’t be sillY, these big 12 companies are treating car parts like fresh water. We shouldn’t have to diminish our quality of life to have access to technology. Are you saying that I deserve to buy my car at half price?

      You sir are an entitled little man. To think anything should be given to you because you think your quality of life should be given is completely wrong. Go work somewhere hard and don’t worry about where other people spend their hard earned money, IT IS THEIR MONEY! There will not be a day I let internet trolls critique me for where I spend my money or on what.

      It’s great that you can CHOOSE to pay $90/month for service. But the question you simply refuse to acknowledge, and that the rest of us have pondered, is whether it is WORTH IT.

      You know the saying…. “A FOOL AND HIS MONEY ARE SOON PARTED…”

      You, my friend, are the FOOL.

    • Buttocks

      Hmmm let me know when what you think of me actually hurts my feelings.

      Sure I will acknowledge the question. I do think $90 /monthis worth it. You may not think it is worth it but I do. What I think is worth my $90 or $100 000 will always be my own choice. Just as how I respect that you think $30 is worth it.

  • Chris Radenovic

    And we’re being forced to pay 100 bucks a month for a sub par monthly plan? I am so done with Canada. Seriously. I want nothing more than to leave.

  • Michel Plante

    WOW why can’t we have better plans Rogers ??? Oh i forgot, Rogers, Bell, Telus are robing us. When Vidéotron make good offers Robelus aren’t Moving !!! Please we need a T-Mobile or Sprint like carriers to make Robelus moves !!!

  • icyhotonmynuts

    So that’s where the SAFs and GRRFs of grandfathered plans go.

  • RussianDroid

    Kinda feel bad for Keith there :P

  • Stephen_81

    So Rogers Wireless has appox 9.5Million subscriptions that is about 113,000,000 monthly payments yearly Works out to about 43 cents per bill goes to paying executive salaries!

    Oh lord If they paid them nothing and let the company be ran by chimps how much better we’d be off! 43cents off my monthly bill! I wants ma money

  • Ulysses Grant

    Executive team that decides when to ripped off customers and lay off employees for a bigger pay day.

  • craig0r

    Cripes, everyone’s whining about the prices of Rogers’ rate plans, but as someone pointed out, if the $48mil were given back to the 9 million customers, it’s like five bucks a month. How about a more even distribution of income amongst Rogers employees? If Rogers, and other employers distributed their income more evenly, your salary would more than compensate for the $5/month. Tsk.

  • Grizzly Beard

    HEY! I am soo happy Rogers fat heads are millionaires! NOT! Lower my rates!
