Unfortunately, we’re still on a 2G network, no word yet on when we would get 3G. I never receive any text from Microsoft, Amazon and Twitter, no matter how many ways I tried. My wireless carrier doesn’t support premium SMS text. It’s pay as you, meaning I have to make sure that I still have funds in K-Net mobile account. At least there’s one gig of data plan ready to go when 3G network is available.
The three major wireless carriers agreed to lower data plans, but consumer group is not happy. Not to call the major wireless carriers cheap bastards. I will let the comment speak for itself.
The CRTC AKA Canadian and Radio Telecommunications Commission had ordered the three National Wireless carriers to come up data plans only to fill in the void in the marketplace. Slim offerings for the consumers, fifteen dollars for 250MB a month on a data plan, and that’s the best offer so far.
