Canada wireless plans worse than 3rd world!
Check out this horrifying post which compares wireless rates for data access. 500MB/Month costs $375 – $1600 per month in Canada compared to $41 – $102 in 6 other countries. We’re moving into a world where we need ubiquitous wireless access. I really expect to be able to flip open my laptop just about anywhere in Canada in the next few years and be able to log onto the Internet at a decent speed.
The carriers really have to get on board with this. They are killing us, and really reducing our choices. It’s a common discussion among my co-workers – who all have very sophisticated phones, but hesitate to turn on the data features due to the cost.
PLEASE, Mr. CRTC, do something about this!
