Granted, the US has 10 times the population, and thus, 10 times the market, so they can afford to be more competitive.
One line in the article did interest me:
“In Canada, wireless has been seen as a luxury,[...] In the U.S., it's been seen as a necessity.”The perspectives are interesting. This would maybe explain why a lot of people that I know don't use their cell phone, and in fact, want to get rid of it. This sort of thinking however, really keeps Canada in the dark ages when it comes to tech-savviness, and also explains why Canada never really get the cool phones till later, if at all. Boooo.
It would be interesting to see how the landscape will change once the cell phone number portability regulation comes into effect next March...
