The Best Cell Phone Prices In Canada
In an era of massive global mobile competition, Canada’s cellphone prices are among the cheapest in the world.
The Canadian Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) says cellphone pricing is the cheapest of all in Canada, with prices ranging from $0.06 per month for a single month to $0 of a year.
It says Canada is second only to Japan, with cellphone prices ranging between $0 and $0 a month.
Canada also has the lowest average retail price for a cell phone, at $2.69 per month.
Consumers have been complaining about cellphone prices since late 2014, when Bell and Rogers introduced price caps on their own wireless services and launched unlimited data plans.
In January, Bell dropped plans to charge for its unlimited data plan, and Rogers said it would stop charging for unlimited data in January 2018.
Now the price caps are in place, and Bell and the other big players have been doing their best to push prices lower.
As of January, Canadian cellphone prices were $0 for two years, $1 for three years, and $2 for four years, according to the CPSC.
The cheapest monthly rates for a Rogers unlimited data, Bell, and C$2.20 per month plan are as follows: Rogers unlimited plan: $5.79 per month
