The Telecommunications Industry has been operating largely unfettered and over time has become, both in Canada and the United States (US), ruled by a few large players. This makes competition by smaller companies very difficult if not impossible.
This lack of competition is what drives up the price of your smartphone and plan. North America has some of the highest costs for cell phone services in the world.
