The introduction of the new CRTC Wireless Code aims to
provide Canadian cellphone users with more consumer-friendly rights. While not
eliminating 3-year contracts altogether, the new Wireless Code will allow
Canadian cellphone users to cancel their contract after 24 months with no
cost. The code ensures that cancellation
fees no longer exceed the amount of the phone subsidy, requiring the subsidies
of the device(s) to be divided evenly over a maximum of 24 months. As a result
of this, if the phone has not been paid off after 2 years, the customer will
only be required to pay the remaining amount of the device without worrying
about extra fees for leaving their contract early. The CRTC believes the new
Wireless Code will be beneficial to consumers and result in a more dynamic marketplace.
The new Wireless Code will take effect starting on December 3, 2013. Consumers
will be granted a 15-day trial period with no penalty for cancelling or
returning their device within this time.
Other positive aspects of the new Wireless Code:
- Customers will only be charged a maximum fee of
$50/month for extra data usage
- International roaming charges will be capped at
- Customers can unlock their device after 90 days
(or immediately should they pay for the device in full at the time of purchase)
- Customers will be able to obtain their contract
- Suspended billing will be available for
customers whose phones are being repaired
British Columbia received a new area code on Saturday, June 1. The 236 area code will be introduced slowly across the province, and will only be given out in areas where there is no longer a sufficient supply of existing area codes - 604, 250 and 778. There's no way to tell where the new code will pop up first, as each geographic area has a different supply of numbers within existing area codes.
There will be no change to existing numbers, nor special service numbers (211, 311, 411, 611 and 911), but if you're signing up for a new service, you may be offered the 236 number.
Expect to see new area codes being introduced in the upcoming months in several other regions throughout Canada, as the increasing demand for telephone numbers, particularly for wireless devices, has created a need for additional numbers across the country.
