If you think you pay way too much for your cell phone plan, you are not alone. In fact, you are in the majority. And it may be about to get even worse …
A new Angus Reid poll finds fewer than one-in-10 Canadians believe they’re getting “a good deal” on their wireless service.
What’s more, as we are so upset with our cell service, entire businesses have been set up to call customer service lines for Canadians who seek to argue better rates.
Now, guess what? There’s a new regulatory decision that may make it more difficult to create competition for the big three providers: Bell, Rogers and Telus.
This decision by the CRTC, does not require large cellphone companies to enter agreements with Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs). Insiders say this clause shuts down competition – in a country known to have some of the highest priced wireless plans in the world.
