New rules allow Canadian phone unlocks, nix termination fees after two years

Advertisement

The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission has unveiled a new code of conduct which will come into effect as of December 2, 2013, bringing some important changes. According to the new text Canadian phone unlocks will be possible after 90 days, or, if the device has been purchased in full, immediately.

Another important provision refers to contract termination fees. Subscribers will be able terminate their contracts after two years, even if the contracted period is longer, without any cancellation fees. Also, if after 15 days (under specific usage limits), they are not satisfied with their service, Canadians can now return their phones. Caps have been included (for extra data charges at $50/month and international data roaming charges at $100/month) in order to prevent “bill shock”.
