When did Koodo increase the charge for calling the US from 5c to 20c on Long Distance saver addon, I had the long distance addon and i never got a heads up about the changes until i looked at my bill recently. How can calling South Africa be cheaper than calling the US, this is nuts.

I'm not sure when but I imagine that you can narrow it down to the period from your last 5 cent per minute call and first 20 cent per minute call if you look at your detailed ebill.

To my knowledge, anyone who had the long distance saver on their account prior to March 19th was supposed to stay on the older version at the existing rate.

That's what happened with the previous major change to rates but the long distance saver page explicitly states it but nothing about subsequent changes.

March 19th is when the rates went from 5¢ to 20¢ a minute to the US.

@Fada, if you changed plans after March the new rate would be applicable.
