  1. Ah Sweet!!!!!!

    Thanks for pointing that out. I’ve been waiting for this CRTC ruling. Fido has been doing it for 2 years now, but no one else has been following suit.

    Until now. Welcome to better rates! I have had my same number for 10 years now, and won’t give it up… Far too good a number… And have stayed with Telus for that whole time because of it.

    Mind you, I got a free contract for a year with heavy negotiating last year with them, because I had 2 cell phones and was willing to part with that awesome number if they weren’t willing to deal.

  2. I waited and waited and waited for this decision, but when Fido told me they were upping my fees YET AGAIN, I said “screw it” and went with Virgin. And I’m so happy I did. I save so much money every month not paying those crazy rip-off artists.

    Of course, I’m not that attached to my cell phone number. My home phone number is the one that follows me around everywhere, so as long as that stays the same, anything else can float on top.

  3. Why would you go wireless when, in a couple years you could go subspace!? But then, they probably wont be able to bring over your pseudo portable number.

  4. Halle-freakin-lujah, it’s about time!

    Hmm… so I think my Bell contract runs out in 3 years, so by then I’ll have lots of options.

  5. I’m with BELL, but using pay as you go so I really don’t care – I can switch at any time. Amoungst my friends, they all seem to agree that Virgin is the way to go so I may be jumping ship soon.
