With almost all major cellular service providers in US offering unlimited data plans, Canadians have started demanding similar schemes from cellular providers in the country.
All major providers in the US including AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, and US Cellular are offering unlimited plans one of the reasons is that the cellular space in the US is hyper competitive. This conflict of interest and the increasing insecurities between providers, unlimited offers made it to the counter. Once T- Mobile introduced the concept of unlimited strategy, all major firms followed instantly. They have all devised similar deals for their consumers ranging from $50 to $90 a month.
However, things in Canada are far more laid back with people paying hundreds of dollars more for their data suage. as no major cellular provider offers a true unlimited data scheme. Reports from the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) indicate that Canadians are spending around $85 for 5 GB data plan.
There are plans wherein once you have consumed your data, you will be able to go for unlimited data but at reduced speeds. For example, Manitoba Telecom services, provides 15 GB at $75 a month. After the 15 GB is burned off, you will receive a slower pace for any sort of internet usage. Customers definitely do not want to exceed per say limit of data use and will be entitled to pay for extra services, when they really require it later.
Observing the revolution in the US, Canadians are restless and eagerly waiting for such services for them too. Apparently, none of the providers have crafted such a deal yet. Since the customers are demanding unlimited data plans, chances are one of the leading companies may just jump right into this game. There is a possibility that the tariffs costs more than what the US offers currently and there can be other major restrictions while availing the deal but it definitely will be a better option than the one they are using in present-time.
