Change the Canadian monopoly on mobile services

This petition had 18 supporters

As a Canadian it is well known fact that in Canada we paid the highest in mobile services, where the big three have the upper hand on ever aspect of the pricing and provided services. One big example, in near criminal abuse towards the consumer is the recently reported by The National, in 2016 alone they made $37 million unlocking smartphones. Smartphones should not be locked when you already are in a contract with a carrier. Secondly, the consumers get hit with outreageous overcharges that our difficult to dispute, and we are not allowed to carry forward unused data from months that you did not use it, as soon as you go over they start billing with no control. We are an open free market society, our government should allow other competitors to provide a true open market to all consumers, our court system is bias in favor of our big three hence the lobbying in Ottawa, one recent example is the CRTC ruling in favor of Roger vs Sugar mobile, where Rogers does not want a small with much cheap prices competitors to exist. The Canadian infrastructure for communication is paid and own by the taxpayers, so is the money that pays the CRTC and any other consumer watchdogs that are failing the Canadian people.
