Driving Canadians to US Mobile Providers

An interesting article from the CBC this morning of residents in Manitoba opting out of the MTS Cellular Phone Service in favour of Verizon.... People are *turning in* their 204 area code for a 701 - North Dakota Area code....

A growing number of Manitobans are dialling up big savings on their cell phones by hanging up on Canadian service providers.Myron Penner, a trucker based in Blumenort, Man., pays Verizon $200 amonth for 6,000 minutes of talk time anywhere in North America.


Speaks volumes... and now that Verizon's gone off the deep end with unlimited data plans, this trend could extend beyond Manitoba's Borders......
