Apparently there was a change in the CRTC Wireless Code and now mobile users have to consent to increases in data usage and charges. Unfortunately this seems to apply to Rocket Hub users as well because I've had to call support two times now to remove holds on my data. Once was last month when I reached the $50 overage limit and just now when I reached the 2nd tier in my mobile flex plan. I was referred to a link on the Rogers website that I could click next time but I can't seem to get it to work. I was wondering if anyone knew the link?
I have to wonder why Mobile Internet was just lumped in with this change considering there is no way to send and receive texts from a Rocket Hub. I checked my bill from last month and it lists no option for Mobile Internet users other than calling support and waiting for a representative. It's really inconvenient to have to call the support line just to get regain access to a service that's theoretically already been paid for.
Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
I would just like to take a moment to elaborate on how our Flex Plans work in compliance with CRTC regulations 🙂
Once a subscriber has reached a Flex Level $50 over the Monthly Service Fees from Flex Level 1, you will need to consent to further overages.
As an example if you have the following Flex Plan Monthly Service Fees:
Level 1 - $60 (up to 5GB)
Level 2 - $75 (up to 10GB)
Level 3 - $90 (up to 20GB)
Level 4 - $110 (up to 50GB)
Level 5 - $145 (up to 100GB)
In this example, once your usage goes passed 20GB, you will have reached Level 4. With the price difference between Level 1 ($60) and level 4 ($110) you will be in Overage, and your data access will be blocked until you consent to resume data usage despite being in overage.
I know it may be inconvenient for those who use this as their primary Internet access... but please understand that this is by design so that we can be compliant as of the December 1st implementation of the Wireless Code Of Conduct.
If you happen to be getting the data intercept earlier or later than what I've outlined above, please reach out to us @CommunityHelps so we can investigate and escalate your account for further review if necessary. You can find instructions on how to PM us here.
As always, thank you for your contributions and for making this Community a pleasant place to be. Enjoy your Sunday afternoon, wherever you are!
Because its a celluar device.. unfortunately rogers probably HAS to comply with the cut offs due to the CRTC ruling.
Now i dont have one of these myself, but if you log into the rocket hub itself, there is no message/text area for it?
As i know the rocket hub mobile hotspots, they DO have a text message thing on them.
I have the 3G27WV-R-3G WiFi Rocket Hub. I don't see a message area when I log in other than the system log which is a constant stream of error messages stating the limit has been exceeded from before I called support.
I mean I'm not complaining about being notified, it just would be nice if I had been given a heads up about my internet access being cut off out of the blue. I used to be prompted with a browser message I could click but apparently that's gone. So that's why I'm inquiring about a link as I can't send and receive texts.
changes to rocket stick flex plan
yesterday while trying to access my internet via my Rogers rocket stick I found that all but the rogers website was blocked off. Then I received a message from rogers saying that I had reach my limit on my internet and would have a extra $50 sir charge on my bill for overage use. I found this very confusing because I am on the flex plan which as you know the amount I pay goes up the more I use so I have never received this message before. Only after I phoned rogers that I was able to get online. The young lady that I dealt with was very accommodating and helpful while she help to restore my internet she had informed my that my internet package had changed as of the start of this year but she could not give me the details of the changes. Now while I understand that thing can't stay the same forever I would expect that Rogers would keep me informed on any changes that would impact services . I have now spent then better part of two day trying to figure out the changes made to my flex plan online with little luck. So my big question is what are the changes to my internet flex plan and why was I not informed of them before they came in to effect????
I have been a loyal costumer to rogers since 2006 and in light of these event I now find myself debating whether or not to continue doing business with Rogers
Welcome to the Rogers Community Forums!
Thank you for posting your concern in the Community. We definitely appreciate your loyalty, thank you for being a member of Rogers family since 2006. The overage notification of $50 on a flex plan can certainly be confusing.
This change of getting the overage notification after crossing the first tier of data by $50 is effective as of December 01, 2017. For more details about the changes, please see the Wireless Code. Below is the excerpt relevant to your concern;
For a customer with a flex plan, the customer begins incurring overage fees after the first tier of data is exceeded, and the service provider must suspend data service when they reach an additional $50 in overage fees, unless the account holder or authorized user expressly consents to additional charges.
Thank you for understanding.
Thats the correct address rogers.com/m/dc . Access it from any computer on the same wifi as the hub. You'll receive an error message 302 when you approve it, but speaking with technical support, they say it's "expected".
I also had to restart the device... I used the restart button under the hub webpage Settings->Device Settings->Restart
I recall in a post, or reading on the net, that Rogers and other companies were given an extension past the December 1st date of implementation around the changes in the wireless code. I see the link to the code was provided, but with all of these changes to data caps for roaming, the recent changes around the number of days for roam like home, would it be possible for a list of links to all the major changes that have come into place in the laat two months due to the wireless changes, in order to make it easier for all to understand how their services have changed.
Just a suggestion to help everyone deal with these new changes.
Maybe a separate pinned post entitled, changes in service plans and clarifications.
This could include the original post on pay as you go, and the current state of how people need to call in and deal with the concern and future forms of their plans individually with the phone number.
Changes to the roam like home days and daily rates, which ultimately can mean a considerable increase before it caps out, along with the future explanation of how roam like home data caps and home caps from Canada across multiple devices on one account will work, and other significant changes, say under a category of changes due to new Wireless code implemenations.
