Wind Mobile Gets Official in Canada Should Rogers, Telus and Bell Be Scared?

In case you re stuck into a three-year contract with one of the big
three Canadian carriers that looks more and more like life in prison
then you should check out the new name in town. Wind Mobile is the
newest Canadian carrier and Rogers, Telus and Bell should really be scared.
Wind Mobile promises a whole revolution in the Canadian wireless
services market and the top three carriers should pay close attention to
Wind s offers and adjust their own plans and prices accordingly. And
Wind sure has some impressive offers for its customers which can t be
matched by the competition at this point.The best thing about the new
carrier is that there s no need to sign a contract. You can choose
between post-paid and pre-paid plans but you won t get tied to Wind for
any period of time. In fact you could walk away at any time in case you
are not comfortable with Wind s plans anymore. That means there are no
cancellation fees whatsoever.
So why should you go to Wind? Well the carrier is going to offer you
unlimited minutes, unlimited SMS to U.S. and Canada, voicemail, caller
ID, call waiting and call forwarding for $45/month while unlimited
BlackBerry data costs $35/month. It sounds too good to be true, isn t it?
What phones does Wind have to offer? Although the inventory is not
comparable to Roger s, Telus and Bell s, Wind does have some impressive
handsets for you to consider: BlackBerry Bold 9700 – $450 HTC
Maple – $300 Samsung Gravity – $150 Huawei U7519 – $130
I don t know about you, but a Bold 9700 with unlimited calling and data
sounds pretty interesting to me.
Of course, it s not only good news. Being a new carrier, you can t
expect a lot of coverage from Wind which means that you won t be able to
fully take advantage of the new network if you re travelling through
Canada all the time. Furthermore as Wind uses the AWS 3G spectrum, just
like T-Mobile in the USA, you ll have to deal with EDGE whenever you ll
be roaming. Does that sound acceptable to you?
So what do you say, folks? Are you interested in Wind yet?
