CRTC Requests More Feedback on Wireless Draft Code

January 29, 2013 7:05 AM | News

CRTCThe Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) is asking Canadians for feedback after unveiling its draft code for wireless services on Monday.

In a second round of public consultations, the CRTC is requesting additional feedback on creating a national code for wireless services, such as cellphones and other personal mobile devices.

More than 3,500 comments were submitted in writing, with another 600 online, when the federal broadcast regulator asked for input previously. Some of the feedback included calls for a clearer understanding of wireless services and fees, and the ability to unlock cellphones on reasonable terms.

Canadians also shared that a set a cap on additional fees, such as those incurred from long-distance calls, usage of voice minutes, text messages, data usage and roaming should be implemented, as well as better online tools to monitor usage and any additional fees.

Comments can be submitted online until February 15, 2013 at 7 p.m. CT.
