Wireless Competition

As Wind, Mobilicity and Public look for exit strategies, the Canadian public will be left with fewer choices and really have no one to blame but themselves.

Rogers, Telus and Bell did their job by aggressively retaining customers matching prices - for now. Knowing full well that if they are able to reduce the customers going to the new providers in the short-term once they bleed their initial capital they can get back to their oligopoly.

Many called and threatened to go with Wind's great all in packages but in the face of making a change - balked. Perhaps they matched the features or even went a bit cheaper for a year, provided a contract was signed. Our short-sighted thinking  gets us every time.
