Minister Bains comments on CRTC announcement on lower-cost data-only mobile wireless plans

Statement

December 17, 2018 – Ottawa, Ontario

The Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development, made the following statement following the CRTC’s announcement on lower-cost data-only mobile wireless plans:

“Today, the CRTC announced that Canadians will soon have access to new lower-cost data-only wireless plan options.

“This is a step in the right direction, but we know more must be done to make prices more affordable for Canadians.

“Connectivity is not a luxury in today’s digital age. And greater affordability for Canadians will come from more competition.

“As such, our government will continue to monitor market dynamics and promote greater competition in the telecom sector to make sure all Canadians can benefit from quality services at a better price.”
