Fido and Rogers' International Roaming Price Increases

February 1, 2018 by
Rogers Roam Like Home

Rogers has increased the price of their International Roam Like Home daily roaming add-on from $10 to $12.

Fido - who is owned by Rogers and usually follows suit - has predictably also increased the price of International Fido Roam from $10 to $12.

Both the Rogers and Fido versions of these add-ons have also had a new cap put in place. If you use either service for more than a couple weeks during your billing cycle, you will only be charged for the first 15 days of service during that cycle. This cap has been raised from the previous 10-day limit. This new cap means that you can rack up about $180 per billing cycling now, rather than the prior $100 limit.

The US-only versions of both daily roaming add-ons have not increased in price. Both are still $6 per day. Both have also had their billing caps raised from 10 days to 15 days along with the International variations.
