    Stop The Spectrum Buy Outs! Demand Real Choice

    We can’t let a few big telecom companies take over scarce wireless assets.2 If we do, they’ll get even bigger, jack up your bill, and guarantee that Canadians have only three mobile giants to choose from.

    Killing mobile choice is bad for our digital economy, bad for our wallets, and bad for our country as a whole.

    This Big Telecom takeover goes against Canadian rules and right now Industry Minister Paradis is about to decide whether he'll enforce those rules. Will he feel the pressure from you, or only from the Big Telecom lobbyists who want more control and more ability to price-gouge?

    Save our independent mobile providers before it’s too late. →

    Please stand up for telecom choice and affordability in Canada. Big incumbent telecom providers should not be allowed to block access to affordable mobile phone and Internet options.

    Vote with your wallet, demand higher monthly invoices to make new entrants some money.

    Or sign some petition expecting money to grow on trees, especially a web petition, because those are always not cheated.

    i think Wind should make two voice plans (one limited for $20 and another unlimited for $30, both Canada-wide) with mobile Internet buckets for an additional cost. They can do like T-Mobile US in that it remains unlimited Internet, but throttled once the bucket is exceeded.

    Isn't that pretty close to their current plans, but an extra $10/month because they include "unlimited" internet, where you get a 6Gb bucket after which you are throttled for the rest of the month? Or do you suggest user be allowed to opt out of the internet thus further eroding their ARPU?

    So, are you suggesting to not sign a petition and do nothing? This petition will be sent to people in government and it might do some good. What you suggest is kind of like not voting during an election because you think it will do no good. Just voice your opinion any way you can to make changes you want.

    Yeah because these new entrants are being bought out because they wanted to stay and didn't want to sell.


    This isn't a consumer matter anymore. This is what the consumers have cornered them into.

    OK Tendenzi. You've already got a lock on the Cynic's Circle Award. You don't have to keep proving it.

    For the rest of you, don't let Tendenzi's pessimism deter you. Openmedia.ca is a legit organization and they've been on the right side of most telecom and internet issues. Signing the petition may not accomplish anything, especially at this late date, but it can't hurt to let the government know how you feel. Governments rise and fall on their popularity, after all. Let them know.

    If only you were as aware and judgmental with online petitions as you are me.

    As too often the case with their campaigns openmedia.ca is displaying more fervour than clarity.

    Their petition to Industry Canada: Do not allow the incumbents "to block access to affordable mobile phone and Internet options."

    How does Telus 'rescuing' Mobilicity from insolvency, block access and deny choice? And no reference to the salient spectrum issue.

    Another muddled message. As a would be champion of the consumer openmedia.ca seems rather ineffectual, which is unfortunate.

    It's not my intention to discourage people from signing the petition.

    Without a competent external buyer, this is all treading water, unfortunately.

    Is SoftBank interested in Moblicity? Probably not. Vodafone? It doesn't possess the economies of scale Voda requires. Same for DT that's trying to exit the US market. America Movil? Telefonica? Orange? I can't see it.
    Have you read the forum rules lately?

    It's rather funny one must wonder who's choice they are purporting to support
    After years in market and no subscribers I think the free market has already spoken in favour of consolidation

    It will be even funnier if petition has more signatures than Mobi subscribers
    It is sad I need to state the obvious but some people just don't get it. Any posts I make are my own OPINIONS and in no way represent the views of my employer

    Openmedia has never been on the right side
    One of the most left wing crazy political groups ever (& on internet thats saying something)

    The new petition is just plain stupid; vote to prevent saving Mobi subscribers!
    Consumers had a chance to try Wind + Mobi, both providers were so incredibly underwhelming they went back to the big3
