This week, Douglas and Daniel stay firmly in the warm confines of Canadian telcos with an exploration of what’s happening at Videotron and Wind Mobile. With Videotron launching a new policy that exempts some streaming music services from counting towards its customers monthly bandwidth, will customers come in droves? Or will the CRTC pounce at the opportunity to ban the process of zero-rating in yet another instance?
And Wind Mobile has reduced its subsidy from $150 to $100 in response to the popularity of Bring Your Own Device? Confusing as it might be, the move points to a decision by Wind to pass along the actual cost of devices to its consumers rather than increasing monthly plan prices.
It’s a great show with some excellent debate, so tune in!
