Today, Bell Aliant is doubling the cost for pay phones to 50 cents in all four Atlantic provinces.
It’s the first pay phone price increase in Atlantic Canada in more than 20 years.
The rest of the country has been paying the higher price since 2009.
The 2017 Communications Monitoring Report from the CRTC says the number of pay phones in Canada dropped from nearly 94,000 phones in 2012 to about 57,000 in 2016.
Shouldn’t they be lowering prices to attract us to the ancient phone?
