God I love this.

I love when Monday mornings start out like this. Found this article on my Google Desktop this morning from the Toronto Star about how the city of Toronto plans on making the entire city a wireless hotspot and it could start as early as September or October of this year.

Having had to compare rates for internet, cable and phone providers I quickly found out that telecommunications companies in Canada suck. Like hugely suck. I am soooooo tired of this stupid “system access fee” that serves no real purpose other than allowing companies to advertise a lower cellular package price. Rogers is now doing this not only on their cell service, but now also on their “home phone” service. My long distance provider is also jumping on the bandwagon. Bastards.

The worst part of this whole thing is that I have no other choice for a cable provider! I can’t install a satellite dish outside my building, so what else can I do? They’re coming to hook up my service tomorrow.

So now Rogers is all pissy about this announcement because previously they’ve had little competition for providing internet. All I have to say is that it’s about damn time.

    i agree – those stupid telecom monopolies can kiss my ass — I hate them even more since they want to charge google and yahoo and other web companies to access “their” network — they want to get it at both ends, which is retarded and the crtc should call them on it!

    later cutie 🙂
