On May 2, Bell Canada struck a deal to buy Manitoba Telecom Services (MTS).
This would reduce options for cell services in Manitoba from four to just the big three national providers: Bell, Rogers and Telus. In Ontario, BC and Alberta, which only have the big three providers, all cell phone packages are dramatically more expensive with fewer options.
For example, none of the big three providers offer unlimited data like MTS does—and charges for going over can be huge.
But it’s not a done deal. It can still be stopped!
