Is the federal government trying to hide from results of this year’s report on telecom prices in Canada? Their silence today over the release of the annual Wall Report report sure makes it look that way - and having seen the results, it’s not hard to imagine why. Yet again, the annual report analyzing Canada’s telecoms prices reveals that Canadians are paying among the highest rates in the world.
The report compares Canada’s landline, cell phone, broadband and mobile Internet, and basic TV service bundles to those of Australia, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the U.K. and the U.S. (some of the most expensive countries around the globe).
How do we compare? Well, in short: we don’t. Across the board, Canadian telecoms services just don’t measure up. At 89 pages, the report is a long read. But it’s worth taking a look if you want to figure out how exactly how your plan compares.

Great news for subway commuters users in Toronto, and yet another reason to escape the high prices and rampant abuse of the Big Three as new options become viable for Canadians. We hope that other providers will follow Wind's lead, and that the CRTC and Industry Canada will take bold steps to improve mobile choice and affordability in Canada.
