    I see. I was just trying to clarify Andrew’s ‘distinct society’ comment that had people confused. I didn’t look into the plans, but assumed that’s what he’d found; I guess he just meant the...

    A big reason the big 3 can claim Canada’s networks are so ‘fast & amazing’ is because they have been so under utilized due to their expensive and restrictive plans. Throttling would only occur...

    I went bare with my GS7, which acquired a bunch of micro-scratches and 1 readily visible scratch over the course of 2 years. I went bare with my Essential PH-1 as well, and it picked up...

    So we finally get to see Rogers' handling of the financing model, and it looks like they have put a lot more thought and care into their offering - subsidy options remain, true '$0 upfront' phones,...

    June 30 = last day of Q2 = the carriers not being concerned about meeting sales targets. Now's a holding pattern until the back-to-school offers are posted.

    The 'cost of adding a new phone number' is the cost of acquiring a customer. It is appalling that these companies are so settled in their oligopoly that they think we should PAY them for the...

    Bell responded within 24 hours, they were clearly prepared for this. Telus was either stubborn, or caught flat footed - their initial response was slow, and weak; their eventual match was...

    If their network is up to par for your needs, Rogers' unlimited plan IS shareable (or at least according to the plan details on their website for my region).

    I don't quite understand how the Android ban is supposed to work - commits to AOSP will still be available, will they not? Isn't this just eliminating Huawei's ability to use gApps and access the...
