I am a frontline employee, and having to clarify stuf is not what I like doing in my off time.
But I also perfer if people have the right info.
People up here do want phones for free yes, but as I said in a previous post no all people demand free phones.
I've had people tell me that they would like a free phone but understand why they have to pay for it
why do you say Google evil when i check things they don't do lot of shady thing like Microsoft
12345, 22 Jan 2015Please don't comment if you don't know what your talking about. Want a GS5? That would be $80/... moreThe Canadian telecom industry is not without its faults, the funny thing is that the prices for phones your mentioning are the same as in the states.
You think they get the phones for free? Cmon man. They have to pay for then somehow.
Every business is made to maximize profits, it's a business.
What most people forget while making comparisons with the states is the fact that they're 300+ million people vs 35milliom Canadian. The smallest of the major providers in the states has as many customers than the whole Canadian population.
1 Verizon Wireless: 115.780 million
2 AT&T: 106.957 million
3 Sprint Nextel: 55.306 million
4 T-Mobile: 33.388 million
Tbose numbers are from q4 2012.
Educate yourself before talking nonsense, it's business not charity.

That would be $80/month without taxes and a outright fee of $230. iPhone 6? $270. 6 Plus? $380. It's simply ridiculous.
i don't care because I will never use any google service except youtube ever. Google is an evil company and I hate it more than anything in this world.
Maybe Google will provide VoLTE only service because Sprint is CDMA and Tmobile is GSM. Two different technologies for voice.

I can say you're right in certain aspects, yet we have a lot of customers who are willing to pay the prices.
The Canadian consumer had TWO MAIN concerns the CRTC was supposed to address.
They addressed one of them.
The two year contracts.
The one issue they did not address was the cost of our plans.
We pay min on a smartphone plan 80 dollars (Prem smartphone T1 provider), 230 max for 30 GB of data (Prem smartphone T1 provdier).
The US and most countries are paying around 30 to 70 bucks CDN for a standard plan without addons. The 80 dollar plans are without any addons and just 500mb of data.
So please, when you speak of the Canadian market, do some research before you speak.

12345, 22 Jan 2015Come to Canada! We have the worst service provider pricing ever! People in Canada are unbelievable, they want the cake and eat it too.
They don't want to pay for their phones and they want super low rate plans.
Get over it, it's a business, they're there to make money.
