Bill history - Less data is more expensive than more?


I've been on the same plan since 2011. The old $15/month basic plan + Data Saver. Here's a sample from my history of what I've been charged for data according to my bill history: 262MB : $10 + $5 base = $15 240MB : $15 + $5 base = $20 249MB : $10 + $5 base = $15 Any explanation? Either way, those older rates seem to be better than the new ones???

Not sure why you were charged these rates. Here are the old rates for the data saver from 2011 Up to 25 MB - $5 26 - 100 MB - $10 101 - 300 MB - $15

To add to Reena's post, Since you are billed 1 month in advance for the Data Saver, the $5 is already taken into account so the charge that you see is the correct amount 🙂.

If you want better help here just post a screenshot of your bill. Without your personals of course. We need context.

So if I'm mostly concerned with data I would actually have to pay a bit more if I switched to either the new basic $20 plan + flex data or even the $30 canada-wide plan with (75min+100MB) with the current double minutes/data special. That's taking into consideration that my current bills are almost always $30+taxes= ~$35 I'm looking mostly at the $30 plan. From my understanding, my exact same usage under the $30 plan with the double data/minute would get me to $35+taxes = ~$40 because I would have to pay $5 for going over 200MB. Of course I would gain the unlimited texts/voice caller/caller id/more minutes though.

I might be wrong, but I guess you could also lose per-second billing. It might not be a big deal for you, but for some it is 🙂 Worth considering... depending on whether your plan still charges per second - I think it changed somewhere in 2011 if I'm not mistaken 🙂
Here's screenshots of two bills that confuse me
