Yesterday, we published an article that states Montreal is ranked Canada's most expensive city for parking. Today we have better news for Montrealers as it turns out wireless data prices are lower in Quebec than similar plans across Canada.
A new government report shows Canada's three biggest wireless carriers have lowered prices for a number of plans in the province since January but haven't changed the pricing in all other provinces.
In Quebec, Fido, Koodo, and Virgin brands dropped their prices for two gigabytes of data and other features to $35 per month in February, down $15 from January.
Meanwhile, in other provinces across Canada, the same brands— owned by Rogers, TELUS and Bell respectively— decided to keep their 2 GB plans at $50 per month.
According to the Canadian Press, this is the first report published since the Liberals promised to push down prices for common wireless plans by 25 per cent within two years.
