Consumer advocacy non-profit, OpenMedia, has launched a new survey seeking input from Canadians to share their cell phone provider horror stories, to submit to the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC).
“Canada’s exorbitant cell phone prices and lack of competition are severely hurting our wallets, holding back our economy, stifling innovation and widening the digital divide,” explains OpenMedia.
With the CRTC currently reviewing the Canadian wireless market, “we want to share your perspectives with the CRTC, to show them they can’t ignore the problem any longer. It’s time to allow more providers to enter the market to bolster choice and affordability,” explains the OpenMedia website.
The website will ask for your first and last name, email and postal code, then ask you to answer a list of questions related to affordability, service and choice.
“Enough is enough — Big Telecom has been gouging people in Canada for far too long and change is long overdue. By providing robust data on people’s lived experiences we can convince the CRTC to set things straight!” says the website.
Your information and questions answered will be submitted to the public record and on the CRTC website. Click here to check out the survey.
