Me too. Not only that but the campaign for this is really bad and makes no sense. I mean there is one radio commercial where they have some lady who works at I think a bell call centre yammering on about how if a big US company comes in they will forget about the smaller cities and towns and only pay attention to the profitable major cities. But isn't that a good thing. I mean if they stay out of small cities then bell has a massive advantage in those places.
Also I am also super tired of those ads about how cellphone rates are competitive in Canada. After a trip to the US last Saturday I call bullshit on that. I was in a walmart in northern NY and they had signs up in the electronics section about how you can get a nationwide wireless plan with unlimited voice/data and text for something like $35-40 bucks a month with no contract. Looking at Rogers.ca they don't even offer a plan like that. Their cheapest plan is $50 per month with a 2 year contract and is nothing close to being unlimited.

My contract is up in October, I welcome any US provider to offer fair prices and to break this monopoly they have! I'm sick and tired og paying a fortune and still having to call Telus every month because they charge me too much due to "computer error" lol. But we should stand up and protect the corporate companies that have hands in our pockets because its not fair for another company to come in..

But besides huge corporations who has the cash available to start a national wireless telecommunications network? It is not like you can start a local cell phone service out of your basement, put a cell tower in your back yard and sell service to your neighbors and then slowly expand one neighborhood at a time until you are national. You need to be a big player to start with. And if all the big Canadian players are already in the game and the government wants to open up competition, what other options do they have besides allowing foreign companies access. Now if they could just do the same thing with airlines.
