Canadians paying 13% more for cell phone service than last year - time to Demand Choice!

Canadians are paying 13% more for cell phone service than they did last year – this while Canada’s overall inflation rate holds steady at 1%. That's according to a study released by J.D. Power & Associates. At the start of 2013, the average monthly cell phone bill in Canada topped $77, an increase of $9 from 2012, according to the study. These high cell phone bills are largely due to our broken cell phone market, in which three large players control upwards of 94% of services, and where smaller independent players may be on their way out. It's time to stand up to demand a wireless market with greater affordability and choice by signing the petition at http://DemandChoice.ca
