Regional competition. We've expressed our dislike for this practice ad nauseam, but it remains unchanged. It's certainly not helping build brand loyalty.

Videotron. Because they dropped their prices and these guys of course want to compete they followed suit.

Harper was right. Competition does lower prices. Unfortunately for Wind and Mobilicity, the competitor needs to have decent network coverage in the province/nationally to have an effect

Bob, change your province to SK or MB and you're in for a heart attack...

Videotron is the only reason and they are going national! http://mobilesyrup.com/2014/06/18/videotron-hints-at-national-wireless-rollout-launches-wireless-for-less-portal/ Hopefully they won't be as greedy as Big 3 outside of Quebec and we will finally see some real competition in other provinces. This would definitely bring prices down and greedy Robellus CEOs won't be pocketing as much money. Your "Rest of Canada" doesn't include MB/SK. $94/month plan in AB/BC/ON is $55/month in MB/SK and it is also eligible for Large Tab! MTS/SaskTel is the reason for this one. I'm on that $55 MB plan with Large Tab and that's why I'm a Koodo Customer.

Hmm... I guess they do cover Gatineau and surrounding areas.

In that case I recommend you go with Videotron

Videotron has an outlet in Orleans, Ontario so east side of Ottawa,
& overall service I have got from Koodo  Has been good to great, Telus wen I was a  client would not consider matching Koodo, nor would Bell or Rogers
I have recommended many of my friends to Koodo and all are very happy.
