Reducing Roaming Costs for Canadians
Although Canadians are among the most digitally connected in the world, we also pay some of the highest wireless rates in the developed world.
We have already taken action to achieve greater competition.
As a result, wireless rates have fallen 20 per cent since 2008.
Canadians will see more choice, lower prices and better service if more competition is injected into the marketplace, for the benefit of consumers.
Our government will continue to advance a policy that ensures at least four competitive wireless companies are in each market.
To that end, we will take steps to reduce roaming costs on networks within Canada.
Our focus on consumer interests will increase competition in the wireless sector and help provide Canadians with more choices and access to the latest technology at better prices.
