Canada’s new low-cost cell phone plans ‘A joke,’ expert says

Sunday 11:43 GMT

In March of last year, Canada’s telecoms regulator issued a decision that held a tantalizing promise for Canadians: The prospect of affordable cell phone plans.

Some of the new low-cost data plans appear less generous than what telecom giants are offering through their data plans for tablets, Klass noted. The plans allow users to operate the devices using data instead of WiFi through a SIM card that often works on phones, too.
