Data overages, are they grandfathered too?

I have the Canada-Wide Data Double 45 plan from 2013 which at that time included data overage charges of $5 per 500MB. I have never gone over this to date but expect that it may start to happen due to a change in phone use.

My question is, does the overage that was included at the time of signing up for the plan still apply today - meaning is it also grandfathered? Or do data overages change (it's currently $5 for 100MB).

Thanks.

Overage rate is based on your specific plan.  So if your plan has an overage rate of $5/500MB (which is a great deal these days), then that is what you have now too

Thanks - yes that overage is not bad which is why I will opt to go over here and there rather than sign up for a plan with more data.

I wish the self-serve website would show these nitty gritty charges on my current plan - it's just so vague. It does not even show the number of nationwide minutes included in my plan. I just happen to remember it's 400.

Yes the self serve description of the plan is horrible.

If you want to know your minutes you can go to usage and it should show your data and minute limits.
