    34,000 growth in subscribers in Q1 does not seem all that impressive for one quarter however, as Igor mentioned, that was before the aggressive data plan marketing and introduction of iPhone 8 and X sales and support. It’ll be interesting to see if Q2 had at least double the growth of Q1 with 68,000 or more subscribers.

      It’s very interesting. I want to see Q2. Being a customer (since they don’t service toronto ontario, can’t get their wired ISP or tv services, only wireless), this is good news.

      We shall see.

    I wonder what their NET subscriber numbers are after those “record disconnects”

      It’s really difficult to tell. It could mean port-ins from the big three, or port-outs due to deceptive marketing from larger carrier’s.

      Examples of deceptive marketing please.

  • somebody else

    To account for (keep in mind, I read this on both twitter and facebook), the larger carrier’s are trying to impact freedom mobile’s website, specifically where you login, to prevent people from checking account information, usage (respectfully where habits remain) and to make bill payments or plan changes.

    It’s sad they resort to this sort of tactic, and quite low of a blow. I award them with a shameful head-desk in a pie plate of poop.

      But it’s not the company that’s at fault it’s the employees that are “Ultimately Responsible” Or does that logic only work in favour of Freedom?

      You do realize you’re not good enough to pull this off right?
