    In China, I get 26GB for ¥100 per month. If the CRTC is going to give carriers a monopoly, the carriers should have to abide by price controls.

    all rip off 1gig for 90 bucks that sucks global must be taking kickbacks from bell

    I thought Australia was bad but this is bloody expensive!

    Canadian cell market is a scam! U have to own the oligopolies and use dividends to help pay your cell phone bills. They will soon allow any country to sell cars here, yet cell competition is closed.

  5. Taylor Hickey on May 5, 2020 at 3:55 pm

    This is such bull because all three smaller companies virgin, Fido and Koodo offer way more data for those prices. I have unlimited talk and text and 5Gb data for $85 and there still offered. This is not recent or paid for by Bell Canada.

    But why is Chinese government media telling me this?

  7. Robert Davidson on May 5, 2020 at 4:02 pm

    Bells sucks big time

  8. amerasia5189 on May 5, 2020 at 4:02 pm

    Freedom mobile start from 15$ per month:

  9. Ahmed Salim on May 5, 2020 at 4:03 pm

    $95 for a frigging cell phone plan with just 1gb data? Are you kidding me? I feel sorry for all the Canadians out there. Lack of regulations of governments part is wrecking havoc on average cell phone user.

    I live in Toronto. I shut down my rogers cell account and my family and I have a family plan with AT&T (US carrier) and this is our plan outline: unlimited calling anywhere in US, Canada or Mexico and UNLIMITED North American data. Yes, unlimited data. I can listen to Spotify for 6 hours straight (using data) in Calgary or Florida if I wanted and also have a 5 hour call to someone in NYC while I am vacationing in Vancouver. NO EXTRA charges. This BS with Rogers and Bell offering 3 GB of data? That is hysterical!!! Switching to a US carrier was the best thing I ever did.

  12. Adam Marjadsingh on May 5, 2020 at 4:08 pm

    I’m getting 8gb + unlimited talk/text to Canada and USA for $50/month. I’m on Freedom.

  13. Zander Chen on May 5, 2020 at 4:09 pm

    Buy a foreign plan from other countries

  14. Elvis Mark on May 5, 2020 at 4:11 pm

    and also having Rodger shut down two for the gimmicks that they both we are sick and tired of cell phone companies that pick on us we have sick and tired of the prices that we pay when they get out where they’re allowed to get away with murder and not just that also pick on disabled people we are so sick of this it has to stop and I want to start a campaign where I can have these doors closed of these three companies that get away with criminal Acts and I need help to get this done I am not allowing this to happen anymore enough is enough there’s only so much as he can get out of us and especially I can’t contact my doctors in my doctor’s can contact me without a phone I have no contact of my doctor I told you I’m very sick and they should not happen to me especially when they’re trying to take extra money away from you to solve the problem cell phone companies should solve the problem with no problems added and especially getting away with a criminal act to ask you more money when your monthly is paid they want extra money to switch you from 20 gig to 8 gig 20 gig cost me $70 and go back to eat cake the one $50 how is Ethan switch from 20 gig to 8 gig and one more money even though you paid for your month and this is what cheddar is getting away with and if you don’t pay them to cut you off this is atrocious it should be abolished that all cell phone companies and I believe they Rob Ford made this law that also phone companies are supposed to be the same no matter how the company is run and this is one of the laws he made and if you’re offering 20 gigs is 20000 megabytes not 90 GB and then cut you off doesn’t make sense that you pay for your month and then get ripped off insidious if CRTs can see this I want something done immediately to chatter phyto and Rogers I want the door closed for taking my mom away from me and putting me in Jeopardy without a doctor contact especially to see money from a disabled person I need help can somebody help me out there this is all this contact me this is Elvis

  15. Claudio Cavalcante on May 5, 2020 at 4:12 pm

    What about the reputation of that company (Bell)!? it usually overcharges customers and it is well known as a real crook company that steel money from people!! I already had a couple of very very bad experience with Bell and I definetly Do NOT recommend it to any person.
    Good luck to those ones choosing it as a service provider!

  16. flameshana9 on May 5, 2020 at 4:16 pm

    Koodo gave me unlimited talk and txt Canada wide, and 5GB of data for *$30.* And I’m fairly certain I’ve seen similar plans from Freedom in some stores.

    Shop around, and you’ll find good deals now that prices are falling.

  17. on May 5, 2020 at 4:18 pm

    Tech, Telecom & Media: Busted auctions: No buyers for Canadian media companies

  18. Nina Sol on May 5, 2020 at 4:19 pm

    We need to put our voice up to the companies in Canada this is ridiculous amount some people pay a month. I’m very happy with CHAT-R $25 plus tax no data I don’t need it the service is crispy clear every where included at the Person Airport some peer have issues with their provider the cell didn’t have reception in some place I didn’t have any issues.
    I’m with this company since May 2011. How we can make these company to continue taking ADVANTAGE of us and start to give better plans. I STRONGLY believe others countries complain and the companies listen we need to do the same!!!

    Never knew I was dating a player until I saw deepdarkwebcracker411 at gmail who exposed my cheating boyfriend in 2 hours. Thank you guys

  20. Yakub Productions on May 5, 2020 at 4:22 pm

    I’m playing $52 + taxes for unlimited call/text Canada wide and 8 GB data with Fido

  21. Mohammed Dohadwala on May 5, 2020 at 4:25 pm

    It’s so cheap in India. 2 gb a day so that’s roughly 60gb a month with unlimited calling and SMS for close to $3USD A month.

  22. inspired528 on May 5, 2020 at 4:29 pm

    Every mobile provider in Canada is a ripoff, in one way or another. Sure so-called Freedom (gone with the Wind) has about the lowest price point, but spotty service, slow internet speeds, and hopeless customer service. Having lived and worked in several different counties, Canada is the worst when it comes to mobile/cellphone providers.

  23. Rob Davidson on May 5, 2020 at 4:29 pm

    Bell NEVER Rogers Telus NEVER etc rtt

  24. Linnie Reeve on May 5, 2020 at 4:30 pm

    Oh and I forgot to mention the AT&T plan is 60.00 US per month.

  25. SaiyanPrideAMV on May 5, 2020 at 4:31 pm

    I get the same thing from rogers plus 3 gb data for $45 a month, less than half of what they said. but it is a business plan tho, probably reason for the discount.

  26. Elvis Mark on May 5, 2020 at 4:39 pm

    Do not go to chatter reason is I started their new 20 gig plan and they’re only work for 7 days and then cut me off how I need my phone so bad very bad because I need it for medical purposes such as I have a church or a gland brain tumour and I need a hip replacement I have no contact with my doctors are anything right now the only reason why I’m talking to you is I’m using Wi-Fi off our building but as much as this is a $70 plan should last you exactly 3 weeks no matter how you use it and then slow down with the last week but there’s $70 plan of ripping you off and targeting a disabled person I wish there was a lawyer out there who could help me about this to take him to court also apart of final which put my mother in the hospital for the rest of our life for no reason the fellow at Woodbine Centre decided to attack us he was the representative for Fido behind the the clerk’s counter obviously my phone said it paid for were there and I asked for them NSE put the boxes on the counter and mediately removing them and throwing them underneath the counter deliberately then decided to call Security on us we are not causing no problem at all but the security guards turn around and threatened my mom to the point where she was shaking so bad my mother wouldn’t allow me to help her get these idiots off our back what is the threats kept coming to an older lady of 80 years old later on that night at our home was the Fatal point of her life she went into convulsions slamming your body against my door she fell to the ground and had a bad stroke on her left side frostbite all these threats at Woodbine kiosk of Fido counter problem to us causing my mother to have a stroke wind up in Etobicoke Hospital and was boss hours before they could see her what is the hours ticked by the stroke you can finally see what it has left behind her whole left side paralyzed and Her speech pattern was pretty bad but her memory is still there but even though I can’t see her anymore beware of these false advertising things and gimmicks that freedom or is it call it wind or is they call it Fido or is they call it chatr stay away from these companies I mentioned all they’ll do is get you into trouble and they’ll victimize you for cost far as I’m is so much as my mother that I cannot see anymore she’s all the way in Shelburne hospital for the elderly but having my mom taken away from me it surely makes me mad to see these companies get away with criminal Acts I would sure like someone to see this and have something someone connect me to give me help go back at these cell phone companies and sue them for everything they have for doing this to an elderly woman and me along with it how many days has it been since I haven’t seen my mom but able to talk to her now I can’t because my phone has been turned off where they purposely cut me off and certainly I want something done about this it shouldn’t be in the wrong hands of a company operator that could not handle his company properly and not take forward to the problem of this matter I would sure like to sue the companies of phyto chatr but I need a lawyer and some help if I can get it I’m so disabled it isn’t funny and also to have your phone purposely taken away from you I want these companies shut down they should not be allowed to take people for a ride and commit crimes where they get away from it I need them shut down I don’t want them harming anyone else Yours Truly Elvis
