Could be after seeing what the government was able to get with their charge against robellus they figure why pay anyone to fight for them.

I'm really ignorant as to what's available or can be found as far as plans go. I'm with Telus now and when I was searching for a plan they seemed about as good as the next...nationwide plan.
When I was travelling to the U.S. regularly I had a north American plan with Verizon that would never ever be offered here by a Canadian carrier. I was really hoping Verizon or Sprint would by some air or bandwidth here a month ago when the sale happened, alas...
Maybe this will shake things up a bit.

I always thought that Telus was the most expensive one of the trio. I was with them for one month just to try and see if I get any reception at home compare to Bell, sadly same thing and I paid 75$ for like unlimited texts and local calls but only 1 GB of data.

Well I guess they feel like overcharging here. I mean videotron has the same plans but 60$ instead of 75$ (6 GB of data, unlimited text nation wide and unlimited call throughout the province.)

Hasn't Telus been rumoured to be looking at buying Public/Mobilicity? Maybe by dropping out of the CWTA, it'll make this easier for them to do?

I do agree though that Telus has the highest prices in Ontario at least. I've never found their plans to be competitive at all. Their sub-brand of Koodo though does offer pretty good pricing which is typically the trendsetter and then all the other sub-brands of Bell/Rogers follow.

It means nothing... All it means is that Telus doesn't think this lobbying group is helping them get what they want.
