Re: CRTC wants public help on new wireless rules

said by MaynardKrebs:

BitTorrent & TPB also make it "free"

Sans 16+ minutes of commercial kaka every hour.

Not that I condone that sort of behaviour or anything.


Heave Steve, for the good of the country

Of course.



The blabber mouth, Terence Corcoran, with no real insight decided to write more, this time about this new code of wireless conduct


In it he slams the OpenMedia Mouth piece, Anderson, for daring to say he got hooked into a 3 year contract re-newel unbeknown to himself, and calls it out as bullshit.

Well who here has had their cell auto-renew? I know my wife has. And when she called to complain to Rogers, they said they took care of it and is no longer on contract and then lowered her price.

I laughed and told her they just put you on another contract. She says no way. I say call them and find out.... Yup, they stuck her on another contract. Boy was she pissed off. She handed me the phone and said get rid of it for me. So I did. I had to swear at them for what they did and told them to pull records so you can see the lies you told not only me, but my wife. Then they fixed it (I called the next day to confirm it, and it was finally done... or so they said).

So, it appears as Mr. Terence Corcoran once again doesn't have a clue what he is talking about while he is openly calling Steve Andersons story BS.

What we are seeing here is money4words. A media company (Financial Post) fighting what is actually going on with people (and their money) and calling it all lies.

Quite interesting, and yet sad, to see someone in the media saying it's all bullshit as hundreds of people are writing in.

Meanwhile, as this words4money man continues his disservice to all Canadians for profit, there is now over 750 people posting and detailing similar experiences over at the CRTC:

I hope everyone here has submitted any mobile complaint to them that you have you encountered to help the CRTC see what is going on.

pick a name
