Are Canadian Mobile Data rates too high?

    Here in Vancouver Blackberry users have a 25MB cap on their monthly downloads, some users report $800 in overage charges on data. I have a Washington state Verizon account so I called and asked about a Blackberry account with roaming to Canada. For US$79.99/mo I can get unlimited downloads in Canada. Something is wrong here.

  2. Mobile rates in Canada are crazy, and so are investors in the Telcos to accept this pricing.

    There is another equilibrium of pricing that makes the same income: mass volume, low price and no regulatory risk.

    See my post above about how you should be complaining to your Telco’s investor relations department. Lower prices are the shareholder’s interests, dammit.
