mr. roger’s neighborhood

Iphone

Rogers wireless wants to keep the iphone out of Canada. The phone can
access any wireless network, and Rogers, who boasted record high profits
in the last quarter, wants to keep it that way. Rogers has the
monopoly in Canada since buying out Fido. As the only GSM provider, Rogers is
free to charge Canadians as much as it wants. Canada is ranked
highest in cellphone charges, in a tie with Uganda, the difference
being Uganda has a very underdeveloped cell phone network, while
Canadian consumers are just being gouged by a greedy telecom corporation.
Rogers will stall the iphone’s release as much as it can,
and when the new phone is available it will be with much higher
fees than americans pay.
