poor customer service

Let me start off by saying I'm fairly new to Fido and am not a big 'community board' person... I pay approx $150/month as I travel often to the US, when I called and waited on hold (twice) for over 30 mins, I was told they'd charge me $15/bill that I required printed copies of urgently for the government. Total of $45+ tax for copies of my own bills as my printer was down. REALLY FIDO??? You don't make enough money off your customers? You have to rip them off like this? I'll be looking elsewhere based on their poor customer service for refusing to waive the fees, as well as their ridiculous fees and prices.

Hi Cindy,


I sympathise with your frustration with companies that try to sneakily suck money from their customers' accounts to increase revenues. I went to Panama for a couple of weeks and Fido automatically turned on my roaming. Someone texted me and I was dinged $12 ($12/day roaming costs). It is now general practice for all companies to look for ways to do this. Look at all the "free trials" for services where it is up to you to cancel at the end of the free trial or the company will automatically, "for your convenience", start charging you a subscription fee. Or if you are dissatisfied with the service try cancelling your subscription. The company will say "cancel at any time" but try figuring out how to do that. A long time ago a "delete account" icon would be on the homepage or in account management but now it is buried somewhere in a long line of clicking tabs on a webpage or, you have to somehow contact them directly. Contacting a company directly is getting more difficult, too, because the "contact us" icon just sends you around in circles through useless virtual assistants or forums in hopes that the disgruntled customer will just give up or not figure it out in time to prevent another month's subscription fee from being withdrawn. Or, if a customer needs something done companies like to charge "administration fees" so they can actually charge their customers the cost of doing business. Sounds like a conspiricy but these companies pay people hundreds of thousands of dollars a year to figure out how to generate more revenue with little effort.
