  • Wireless carriers hike prices across Canada

    Canada’s big three wireless carriers have hiked the base prices for new plans by $5 in most markets over the past two months.

    Rogers, Telus and Bell Mobility now all charge $80 per month for new smartphone plans with a new contract, $5 more than those same plans cost when they were introduced last year. The prices for other smartphone plans with more data cost upwards of $145.

    Mobilicity deal could stick Canadians with expensive cellphone plans, critics fear

    Rogers has gobbled up troubled small carrier Mobilicity and the federal government is declaring it a victory for consumers.

    Almost two years ago, Ottawa launched a glitzy $9-million ad campaign to let Canadians know it was fighting for their right to cheaper cellphone prices and more choice.

    But with rising prices for some plans and now one less competitor in the market, critics argue the government is actually losing the battle.
