What if everyone acted like our cell phone companies?
Rogers, Bell & Telus where is difference !!!
We believe that Canadians deserve better than what’s currently on offer in the marketplace:
- Higher prices: Due to lack of competition and real alternatives, Canadians pay an average of 60% more for mobile wireless services than Americans according to the Telecommunications Policy Review Panel
- Staggering complaints: The Better Business Bureau released its list of top ten consumer complaint calls. Cell phone companies tops that list – soaring above car dealers, movers and even utilities. Clearly Canadian consumers aren’t being treated as they should be and they’re not happy about it
- Among the weakest in the world: Canada’s wireless industry is one of the weakest in the developing world. Merrill Lynch puts Canadian wireless penetration at 65 per cent, last among 22 developed countries (below Tunisia and Iraq). The International telecommunications Union (ITU) has tracked Canada’s decline from 35th in 1998 to 128th in 2008 – far behind many underdeveloped nations
- Oligopoly: The Canadian wireless market is dominated by three very large, very profitable players – Telus, Rogers and Bell. WIND Mobile, is the only new entrant that offers a truly national wireless alternative.
Excited for WIND in Canada yet?
We are, too! However, a recent CRTC decision deemed that though we meet the objective legal criteria for Canadian ownership, they have subjective concerns about our structure that will delay our launch.
At this time, we are still encouraging Canadians to join in the conversation and tell us how they feel.
