    Why are Canadian Mobile Plans so overpriced?

    I'm on Telus, and just looked up the new "Clear Choice" Plans they have available.

    Why have they eliminated the Unlimited Data plan option? or Fav. 10?

    I'm pretty fortunate to still have my old 200 min, Unlimited data plan and fav 10, but from the sounds of it, I'll be forced to choose one of their Clear Choice plans next time my contract is up?


    In contrast, looking at Vodafone UK, or HK, or any other country for that matter... The Storm 2 is free on a 2 year contract, with unlimited data and texts and 600 minutes for just 35 pounds, or $65 can.

    Can someone explain this too me Its pretty frustrating knowing we pay what we pay for, when compared to many other countries, lesser and more expensive plans.

    Thanks

    Corey

    1.Lake of competition
    2.You wont have to change plans as long as your combined rate is at least $50 and i am assuming it is
    3. In the clear choice there are access or 911 fee and they include basic voice mail.
    4. I have see plans in the us way more expensive.

    justsaying

    Who said anything about free?

    And No, i don't need "unlimited" data just like no-one needs "unlimited" text, but they still offer that don't they?

    During the summer I was working for 4 months where there was no wireless or wired internet available... I tethered to my laptop, and blew through over 2Gb of data in 1 month.

    The point is, they are charging the same now for 500mb as they did 2 years ago for unlimited.... how is that fair?

    Especially when the rest of the planet is still offering Unlimited Data plans, for less money.

    Hum, that does make sense. I can understand that...

    Guess what was bugging me was that they bumped their rates up back up after what I had thought had been a steady decline in data plan costs over the previous years.

    What ever, not much to do about it... ugh lol
