Bell seems to be under pressure from the Office of Consumer Protection in Québec. According to a press release Bell, along with it’s sub-brand Virgin Mobile, have been “inserting clauses in contracts which are prohibited by law. Other charges relate to calculating the costs of termination, which is not in accordance with law.”
The Office notes that this is against Québec’s Bill 60 and in total there’s potentially 305 counts of infringement, which reportedly took place between November 2011 and April 2012. Bill 60 went into effect on June 30th, 2010 and since then the Government has enforced strict laws of how carriers structure and advertise their wireless contracts.
If Bell is found guilty they face fines up to $3,279,270.
