I don't get why people think private industry should be subsidizing their profits for the goodwill of common folk. They will charge most possible to make the most possible. And they're trying to avoid competition because they owe it to their shareholders.
Are they supposed to be like '' Yes PLEAAAAAAASE BRING IN VERIZON !!!! "
The big 3 are behaving predictably, and who can blame them.
All he did was only a summarizing of the North American society.
Quite different from other regions in the world where dictators and even elected governments rob their people blind left and right, only to be disposed and taken over by another equally or even more morally corrupt government.
These problems regarding greed isn't "North American", it's human.
I would rather pay a little extra and have my money stay in Canada instead of going somewhere else
Never as simple as that as the company is paying wages for employees, maintenance, taxes, etc.
Economics may cause there to be more money invested in than out even if the company is pulling a profit, so it may end up net positive (or you could be right and be net negative).
Always many variables and quite often changing.
I've moved all these threads from the canadian team forums to here, as it really has nothing to do with hockey or the teams, and isnt really city-specific OT stuff.
I believe harper has recently stated that he's not going to block verizon or change the rules on the upcomming spectrum auction or rules regarding bell/telus/rogers purchasing the 'newcomers' spectrum (wind/mobilicity). Therefore, even though the big 3 are continuing with their advertising campaigns, i dont see why canadians should even care anymore.
Thanks for posting. Really ****ing hate the cell phone plans here, absolute garbage. Even the ones that have half-decent plans are still owned by bigger companies (Koodo -> Telus, Virgin -> Bell, Fido -> Rogers, chat-r -> Rogers); there's no god damn escape. Then you have Wind that has reasonable prices but the coverage blows chunks, and other smaller companies that simply can't compete in terms of offering the same level of network coverage.
