Public hearing for the CRTC’s proposed “Wireless Code” starts today

The CRTC has started debating the proposed code for mobile wireless services today. While not the most exciting live stream to take part in, it’s certainly worthwhile. The CRTC recently submitted a draft of what would be the “wireless code” that all Canadian carrier would have to adhere to.

Many, not all, of the suggestions have already been implemented and some include giving customers a clearer understanding of their wireless services and fees, give the ability to unlock cellphones “on reasonable terms,” and giving the ability to set a cap on additional fees. Missing from the code is offering 2-year contract term rather than the long 3-year contract that exist today.
