Rogers is scrapping the $6.95 system access fee and replacing it with a “regulatory recovery fee” that will differ by province.

The new fee, which takes effect on Oct. 5, will range between $2.46 and $3.46 per month, depending on the region. In addition, Rogers is raising the base rates of its plans by $5 and adding three free calling features — call forwarding, Who Called and Call Manager, which allow customers to manage incoming calls and alerts them to calls received when their phones were off.

The new structure is an effort to make customer bills clearer and bring pricing policies in line with what wireless carriers in the United States are doing, Rogers spokeswoman Liz Hamilton said.
