Hopefully it doesn't mean increased costs (but it likely will). Good to see the pro-consumer side of the CRTC.

Hopefully this will bring competition on plans and wireless services, rather than competing on phone subsidies!

I'm still bitter about losing the cheaper three year contracts..... just because the iPhone battery could not last that long.

Was it the iPhone 6S? I think Apple had a recall on some of those for power issues.

My iPhone 3GS battery outlasted 3 year contracts, and my iPhone 5 is still usable!
