The State of Wireless in Canada Sucks

Thomas Purves of WirelessNorth.ca did an Ignite presentation titled The State of Wireless in Canada Sucks earlier this week at DemoCampToronto17 and received a standing ovation. I can see why.

The idea behind Purves’ presentation was born last April when he posted a mobile data rate comparison bar chart on his personal blog comparing Canadian rates to those in other countries. The rates of Telus, Bell, Fido, and Rogers tower above similiar packages from Australia, New Zealand, the UK, the US, and Rwanda. This chart ignited a discussion on his blog 148 comments strong and elicited over 1,600 Diggs.
