Postal rate increases came into effect at the start of this month, with a 50 gram local letter rising in price from 35 cents to 50 cents.
The rate has risen by 35 cents for each additional 50 grams of weight, up to a maximum of 2kg.
International rates have also increased: a 10 gram letter to the United States, formerly 70 cents, is now set at 50 grams for $1.15.
A detailed list of increases is given at the web site www.bpo.bm.
It marks the first increase in rates for the service since 2000.
