$7 to $30 per month, Rogers is getting out of control with their rates, I wish we had more options in Canada for wireless providers
30$ a month! WTH? I'm still on contract. Does losing all current plan rebates still applies after you re-activate your cell after suspensding it? I was planning to suspend for 2 months.
Welcome to the Rogers Community Forums!
If you are going to be away, being able to temporarily suspend your wireless line to preserve your plan and phone number is a great option.
Regrettably, if you are currently on a term you cannot suspend your wireless service unless you have paid off the remaining subsidy balance for your device. If you are not on a term then you can suspend your line and keep your same plan when the suspension period has ended.
I hope this helps!

I appreciate your participation in the Community. I can confirm the information you have posted in your post is accurate. The current wireless temporary suspension fee is $30 per month. It's ideal for customers who want to save while being away from the country. Upon restoral, they can continue to access their original plan, bonus data and discounts.

I'm wondering what the process is for pausing my cell phone plan for a few months while I am out of the country, and how much will I be charged for pausing the service? Will I still keep my promotional price and free data after the service resumes when I come back?
We appreciate you joining us in the Rogers Community Forums! Great first post! 👍
The wireless temporary suspension offer is available to Rogers postpaid customers who have a no-term price plan. It allows customers to place their line on a temporary hold anywhere from 2-12 months for a monthly fee of $30/month. During this time, you will not be charged for your monthly service plan (this includes your Device Protection Plan fees, if applicable). Upon restoral, you can continue to access your original plan, bonus data and discounts. This option is considered an alternative to cancelling your line.
A few important things to note:
I hope this information is useful! 😊
We use a Rogers Hub for internet at our summer home. Very expensive only plan is Flex @ $60.00 for only 5GB of data. I suspended it for the winter and was told by Rogers it would be $5.00 per month plus tax. Which is reasonable for it not being in use for six months. Rogers billed me $30.00 for 6 mos in November. Then another $30.00 for December and January. After live chatting today with them today they informed me that I had been misinformed by the agent in November(I sent them the actual live chat) and that it was actually $30.00 per month which is unbelievable for a service that has been shut down and not in use. I would not recommend Rogers for this service to anyone. A definate ripping off of a long time customer. Definately in the market for a better internet provider.
