I pay a little more than that to Wind for plans for the entire family! Where do people get this kind of money to spend on wireless?

Wind isn't the best choice for everyone. If you don't have a home phone, $75 is only a couple hours of work a month for the average person. I pay $50 for 2GB w/fido and I'm fine with it. That being said, this plan isn't a huge savings.

It's live and also looks like Koodo has magically done the same thing and matched Virgin

Back to this for a second, unless you're on retentions or use an MVNO it's not much better in the US. A friend of mine is paying damn near $100 for 3GB plus 500 rollover and unlimited texting through AT&T.
I had to change my pants when I saw her bill. And there's no way to reduce it without talking to retentions or switching to another carrier.
Strangely... prepaid is significantly cheaper than post paid. The US is weird...

What happened to the good old days when 6GB of data was only for $30?

People whined about the 3 year contracts, complained about paying so much for voice minutes and long distance and didn't realized how expensive high end voice/data plans with subsidized flagship phones were getting in the rest of the world.

The CRTC mandate merely allowed the Big 3 to switch to the new unlimited talk, text and shared data plans that makes Verizon the most profitable telecom in the world.

Gone, due to lack of competition.

A couple of hours worth of work for the average person? I am not proud to say it, but I wish I made $75 per hour before tax!

I like this better because there are lots of months I don't even use the 2GB but it's nice to know it is available at a reasonable rate should I happen to go over.
I did the same math earlier figured it would only be worth switching if I went over 3GB on a regular basis.
