Re: [OT] Rogers to axe Mobilicity, transfer to Chatr
Oops, I wasn’t clear – I meant I was considering Mobilicity’s $35/month deal. Last I checked Wind was offering $40/month.
Wouldn’t be a big surprise if both Rogers and Shaw gave some grace period (6 months to a year) for Mobilicity/Wind customers to move to a new, ‘real’ plan, so I have to consider if it’s worth switching or not.
So far my data requirements have been fairly light, but unlimited calling/texting would be better than my current deal with Speakout.
Appreciate your thoughts on Wind, and whoever Brad Shaw is! J

Brad Shaw has already said publicly that the average revenue per user on Wind is too low right now and that has to change, but he hasn't yet said what's going to happen to effect that change. Wind doesn't offer much in the way of LTE speeds for data and I accept that I have a discount service and thusly expect and 'am quite happy with a discount service. It's a win-win. I'm not watching Netflix or torrenting on my wireless plan. I know there are those that do, but really wireless is a shared limited resource and that's an unavoidable fact. What Wind provides is fine for email and browsing.
If one of the big three were to offer, say, unlimited (yeah I can wish!) data or capped at several GB, but choked low speeds like, say, 512Kbps (or even lower) for a cheap price, I'd be all over that. Do you really need 70+Mbps all the time like my company provided LTE+ Bell account provides?
