And if they do... no more $40 7gb or $50 10gb plan. All the price plans across Big 3 will mostly like increases. Unlimited US calling has already disappeared since Shaw took over Wind.

Sounds like a decent trade off

Maybe the trade off is good in a short term. But if you look at the wirelss market in a bigger picture a partnership between shaw and roger will equal to lesser competition thus higher prices, and more expensive hardwares. It would also mean no more public mobile, lucky or zoomer.

I don't want Shaw to merge with Rogers. That is not the intention.casperr wrote: ↑Mar 16th, 2019 4:32 pmAbove's mentality is one the reasons why there is never a real competition in Canada.
Shaw is building their network and if they continue doing this expansion, they will be a lot better in time and can really compete with the big 3.
Some people just need to be think smart.

No wonder your getting poor service on it. Freedom has had at least 5 newer versions of sim cards. Those old sim cards are barely compatible with the network anymoreGee wrote: ↑Mar 16th, 2019 11:40 pmI don't want Shaw to merge with Rogers. That is not the intention.
Sure, everyone can enjoy cheap prices. But is it worth the savings if you don't have service or limited service (Only works when you are standing still)? What exactly are you paying for?
Okay, let Shaw be the lone wolf. They invest in their network and build it out. They may even catch up to the incumbents. Do you think the prices will remain cheap? Someone has to pay for all that infrastructure investment.
All I am saying is that, Shaw should find a way to allow their customers to ROAM on the Rogers network. Give their paying customers service so you don't send an SMS and hope that the recipient receives it within a day.
Maybe it is just me. But I rely on my cell phone and I would like it to work when I need it. I don't want to have an emergency and my cell phone has no service because I am in a dead zone.
Wind released a plan back in 2011. The monthly fee is $5 and it allows unlimited SMS and free incoming calls. All outbound calls were charged. I signed up for that plan and I am still paying $60 a year to keep the plan. The SIM is in a drawer some where and I check it once a year to see if I get service. Last time I sent an SMS, it took 4 hours to receive it on my Rogers line.
