Thumbs up Abolish Cellphone Surcharges anyone?

No matter anyone's politics - I think we would all agree that the dreaded system access fees should go:

Liberal MP David McGuinty has introduced a private member's bill in the House of Commons seeking to abolish the system access fee charged by cellphone providers and enact more rights for customers of telecommunications companies in general.

It's too bad the other carriers didn't follow Bell's All-In-One approach. I still have an AIO plan and I never had to worry about the increases in SAF or 911 fees because they were worked into the price and I was price-protected by my contract (I guess there are some advantages to locking into a contract).

It seems that there are a lot of options now. If you don't like the system access fee, etc., you can get your service from companies that don't charge these fees:

1) Koodoo
2) Solo Mobile
3) Virgin Mobile
4) SearsConnect.
