Bell has launched new nationwide Voice & Data Plus plans for Manitoba residents only, priced at $55, 65 and $75 for 1GB, 5GB and 10GB data respectively.

These plans include nationwide minutes with shareable data and also include unlimited SMS/MMS, message centre lite, caller ID, call waiting and conference calling.

    this is unfair, plans should be Canada wide

  • Jake

    those are actually reasonable plans. Canada wide please

  • Canada

    Why can’t we have these in BC! This is the reason people don’t like the BIG 3!

  • 1His_Nibs1

    Not sure why this isn’t being investigated by the Competition Bureau and why the legislation in the Competition Act isn’t being enforced. Why is it considered “fair” (a word the big 3 often bemoaned regarding their treatment when Verizon was considering becoming a player in the Canadian market) that these plans are provincially exclusive? Maybe someone on here can explain why the big 3 are allowed to get away with this.

    The main reason this is is coverage. Growth for Bell is slow in Manitoba because there is no coverage outside of thw major cities. They are also compeeting with a regional carrier that provides unlimited data at about the same rate. I for one will not jump on this as the coverage issue is just to much of a problem for me.

    So is spelling and grammer.

    Exactly. The Big 3 say that there is lots of competition and there is no need for new wireless startups but this just proves them wrong. Everywhere else in the country where they have dominance they rip their customers off, but are forced to adjust their pricing in the provinces where there is actual competition.

    Yeah, mykee, grammAr LOL

    I would be all over this in Ontario

  • mcfilmmakers

    This is a joke compared to Videotron’s 30GB plan for 80$!

    If you have friends or family in Sask. or Manitoba, like I do, there is a way around it. Though it will require to you have a SK or MB number for a few weeks, until you transfer over to a BC number.

  • pegger1

    The real main reason for this is that Rogers already has these plans in MB.
