In another effort to help Dee, I signed us up for wifi. I can’t understand why, in 2020, Canadians pay so much for this service! It’s a disgrace! In France, we pay 30 euros – tops for an unlimited wifi connection in the home. And our cell phone fees are 20 euros (at least with Free mobile it is), which includes long-distance with US and Canada and unlimited internet usage.
At the moment with American T-mobile, I am paying a flat fee of 70 USD, which includes calls and texts in Canada Mexico, and the US, and 5G internet usage. And that is still cheaper than what Canadians pay for their local connections.
Unfortunately, I found out the hard way it is only on my end. My friends and family who call me have been charged long-distance fees even if they have long-distance plans in place. I am going to have to look more into this matter as it doesn’t make sense to me. If Dee can call Us numbers for no additional long-distance fees, why is she getting charged now, under my new plan? It seems there is a monopoly going on here and it’s price gauging. Not cool Canada!
Luckily for us, Fido in Toronto is offering a covid special, $45CND a month for wifi. Hopefully, this will help.
