Those greedy US carriers. Or not.

Because of those greedy US carriers, Telus is going to have to raise the price of a text message to the US from 25 cents to 40 cents, an increase of 60%. Yes, the most expensive form of communication in the world (or possibly the universe) is going to be even higher.

Strangely, the cost to send a message from a US carrier is only half of that at 20 cents, along with some excellent “calling in Canada” plans that have no equivalent in Canada. Perhaps it is really the Canadian carriers that are greedy?

Perish the thought. Canadians are constantly assured that Canadian telecom companies are competitive with the best in the world, and Canadians should be very happy.

Or not.
