    I just got this as a SMS from Chatr:

    chatr service msg: On your next anniversary date of 11/2/2017 your service fee will increase by $5 per month.

    Also, starting on Oct 25, 2017 the pay-per-use rates for your chatr services will be changing. You can view all rate changes at www.chatrmobile.com/ppuchanges873 . All other features included in your plan will remain the same.

    This change is made in accordance with the CRTC Wireless Code. If you wish to change or cancel your chatr service please contact us at www.chatrmobile.com/contactus .
    Also looks like out of zone minutes are going from 25c/min to 40c/min.

    Yes, I just got the same message (with the exception that my anniversary date is different from yours).

    This sucks, but it was inevitable.

    For what you get, it's still probably the lowest cost alternative around. Unless anyone has any suggestions? I'm opening to changing.

    As well as out-of-zone SMS messages.

    Whelp, I think it might be time to take my two $30 lines and convert them to one Bell/Virgin/Koodo SK line. 15GB data that is full speed and not screwed up and no zone will run about $85.
    Virgin+fongo:
    $60 Unlimited NA, Global text, 6GB

    Chatrlicity:
    $30 Unlimited NAM , $30 Unlimited Province Wide

    Even at $5 more, it's still one of the best deals around.

    ...
    This change is made in accordance with the CRTC Wireless Code.

    "In accordance" as in 'don't bother complaining'.
    On postpaid rates are considered a key term of the agreement, made explicit with the Wireless Code update.

    Still a deal at $35.
    But.. it's the principle.
    A 60% increase in out-of-zone PPU? When you are still on the native network?
    Banditry.

    Finally let my 20GB plan go last month for a Freedom SIM, an easier decision for me at $50 for that plan.
    I now see 8-10mbps on their 3G compared to 3mbps on Chatr, and better pings here in AB.
    Glad to be done with Rogers.

    Those comfortable with zoned usage might consider the FM alternative now.
    Out-of-zone is .05/MB, .05/SMS, .15/min, US & Canada.

    Especially this weekend with their Flash Sale back till the 18th.
    6GB LTE $40, 8GB with US/Canada roaming for $50.

    You'll have to phone in to get your Chatr account number for a port-out, they hide it from the user's online account.

    Depends. Since I had two of them, the price would have gone up to $70. A SK plan could be put together for the same price with Canada wide calling with 15GB, unzone for the same amount of money. A little more gets US roaming as well.

    It's just the $30 versions so far getting increase?

    Odd as I would think the $50 / 20GB would be first on hit list
    Public $120 Province Wide + 12GB - $6 Autopay - $6 Loyalty - $42 Refer = $22 per Month
    Telus SK North American Wide 7GB = $65
    Chatr (Mobi) $40 North America Wide + 6GB + 30 Mins Roaming

    I am on the $30 plan with the 30 out of zone minutes and I have not received this text message yet.

    But I will be switching to Zoomer Wireless early November.

    I'm on the $50 / 20GB plan. I was one of the last ones moved over to Chatr on Nov 17, so it hasn't even been a full year yet. I just got this text message a few minutes ago:

    chatr service msg: On your next anniversary date of 11/2/2017 your service fee will increase by $10 per month.

    Also, starting on Oct 25, 2017 the pay-per-use rates for your chatr services will be changing. You can view the rate changes at www.chatrmobile.com/ppuchanges873. All features included in your plan will remain the same.

    It is. $10 increase. At $50 it was worth it for the lack of speed and occasional loss of signal. At $60 I'm not so sure. Going to start looking into other providers BYOD options.
