Not going to last, it will just delay it by a month and Shaw/Rogers will come back to up the bid. Still set for September from what I hear.

Canada has one of the highest rates for cellular data, and poorest choices of plans.

Look for that to only get worse.

Will they ever notice that they all advertise UNLIMITED plans that have a LIMIT posted on the very next line?

UNLIMITED
25 GB

Makes perfect sense, you have unlimited data up to 25Gb. (even though they say GB, they screw you twice)

Bring down the Rogers-Shaw deal for GOOD: Email your MP NOW!

$1:
This is our LAST opportunity to bring the entire anti-affordability Rogers-Shaw deal to its knees — but we need your help.

On May 9th, the Competition Bureau made headlines siding with Canadians against Rogers’ bid for even more power and influence. But they just picked a fight with a giant who says it won’t give up its plans to buy Shaw.1,2,3

Now, Rogers’ lobbyists will bring everything they’ve got to convince Innovation Minister Champagne to push the deal through. What they aren’t counting on? Thousands of people in Canada speaking up to drown out their lobbying.

Here’s the strategy: we bring our MPs into the fray to publicly pressure Minister Champagne, making it politically impossible for him to side with Big Telecom. On board? Email your MP NOW: Call on Minister Champagne to block Rogers from buying Shaw!



Signed, sealed and delivered. Had a great chat with my MP too.

I'm also wondering how those ads from Telus that 'telus' that letting them have more 5G spectrum will bring better rural internet access.
5G has a range of about 1/2km, barring obstructions. I used to serve many people 25-30 km away from our towers. But what the fuck would I know? I just did that for a living for 2 decades....
