Coronavirus: Rogers says no data overage fees for home internet customers

Rogers is suspending data limits for its home internet customers as telecommuting gains steam due to the new coronavirus.

The company said the vast majority of its clients have unlimited access but that those with limits won’t face penalties if they exceed their cap.

“…We are temporarily lifting data caps for our customers on different internet plans during this public health situation, as we continue to explore ways to assist our customers,” a spokesperson said.

The move follows a similar announcement from AT&T in the U.S.

“Many of our AT&T internet customers already have unlimited home internet access, and we are waiving home internet data overage for the remaining customers,” a spokesperson told Global News.

“Additionally, through access from AT&T, we’ll continue to offer internet data to qualifying limited income households for $10 a month.”
