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:
- Introduce a price cap on internet cellphone and Internet bills.
- Require companies to provide a basic plan for wireless and broadband services.
- End data caps for broadband Internet and mandate unlimited data plans at affordable rates for wireless.
- 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.
