    Hidden Fees on Rogers Plans

    I'm switching to the Rogers Quebec Government plan from Fido. But I've noticed some differences:

    Rogers: CDN texting only Fido: International Texting

    On Rogers, the U.S. & International Preferred Rate with the $5 Value Pack is 10 cents/min to the USA. On Fido, the the U.S. & International Preferred Rate with the $5 Value Pack is 1 cent/min to the USA. Could this be a typo on the Rogers site? It's very bizarre.

    http://www.fido.ca/web/content/ldtra..._rates_premium

    And how much are international texts? I can't find the fees section anywhere on the site.

    Has anyone here on a corp/govt plan had any success in getting Rogers to comp the value pack or international texts? Will I have to get the value pack for every additional line on my ShareEverything account?
    Fido: Unlimited Canada-wide, 2gb data, CID/VM/CF unlimited SMS/MMS, unlimited US calling with GV=$37/month

    Yup. There are hose differences between the two.
    I believe the Rogers value packs adds international sms and also the 10c usa calls.
    As for comp'ng the packs, maybe with an agreement you can negotiate something?
    My Plans (Rogers): Biz Share Flex $80 (unlim stuff w 4gig) + $35 second line.

    The premium long distance calling rate difference is insane! Why would anyone make LD calls with Rogers then?

    A normal international SMS without a value pack is going to be 75cents. I thought it was included in my plan (because Fido has it)... but at my surprise I was charged for it.

    I simply took a value pack for all the calling features included + international SMS
