Uncompetitive Canadian Pricing Threatens Mobile Internet

















For example, consumers in Lithuania can purchase an unlimited data plan for less than $3.00 per month, while similar plans can be had in the Netherlands and France for under $15.00 per month. In fact, Canada not only trails the U.S. and Western Europe, but Eastern European countries such as Poland and Romania, Asian countries such as Malaysia, and African countries such as Rwanda all offer unlimited monthly data plans for less than $50. Even in those countries without unlimited data plans, the pricing is often far better than what is found in Canada. Italians can purchase 1 GB – double the largest Rogers plan – for $29 per month, while a 500 MB monthly plan is $45 in South Africa, $79 in Mozambique, and $103 in Tanzania.—Uncompetitive Canadian Pricing Threatens Mobile Internet
