Cellphone Bills

High-speed Internet and cellular services are essential in 2019.

But Canadians pay some of the highest prices in the world for service that’s far from reliable – all while the telecom companies rake in billions in profits and subsidies. For decades, Liberals and Conservatives have let these corporate giants take advantage of Canadians.

We need a government with the courage to stand up to telecom companies. 

That’s why the New Democrats will:

  1. Introduce a price cap on internet cellphone and Internet bills.
  2. Require companies to provide a basic plan for wireless and broadband services.
  3. End data caps for broadband Internet and mandate unlimited data plans at affordable rates for wireless.
  4. Create a Telecom Consumers’ Bill of Rights to protect Canadians from price-gouging and outrageous sales tactics.

It’s time for a government that puts people ahead of telecom company profits.
