Value added service = VAT, David, also known as "tax" :)

The HST is calculated on my bill and is separate from this fee. I have never had this fee before why now?

would those be Premium Texting Services? or other Premium Services maybe? It's not a tax like the HST or VAT

I see what you mean now David. And where you are seeing them. You are looking at your bill summary via the app. Value added services are monthly add-ons. In your case you have the International LD saver that you put on years ago. That was $2 a month at the time. Plus, you have a $5 for data that was put on Feb 14th. A partial charge of $0.17 bring all of it together for $7.17. Hope this helps.

Thank you, it looked like the $5 was added twice?
Was that for the first month and then the roll over for the second month? I signed up at the end of my cycle

It's not added twice David. But there is proration is there ($0.17) given that you did sign up at the end of your bill cycle. If you open the pdf version with the detailed it will show you there.
