Canadian Telcos fighting CRTC ruling

danomac (1032160) writes "It appears the Canadian carriers are seeking to overturn the proposed CRTC code that will take effect in December of this year. This code was previously discussed here at slashdot and had things like caps on contracts, reasonable roaming rates, and mandatory cell unlocking. The major sticking point is that this code is to be retroactive, and the big telcos are worried that this will set a bad precedent if customers can effectively cancel their existing three year contracts. However, it sounds like they're not happy that they are no longer the only ones that can arbitrarily change a contract. Some carriers may even defy this new code as they fight through the courts."
