The End of Roaming?
By Peter Aggus
Since Cellular began, we have been charged high fees for using the service outside our home area - known as `Roaming`. Most Canadian plans now include free roaming within Canada but still stick to charging for international use. The European Court has recently ruled that roaming charges are discriminatory and new plans will allow European users full calling and roaming throughout the EU without extra charge. In North America, new players and new plans from existing players look set to challenge the status quo. Could this be the end of Roaming and Long Distance charges for us as well?
Cascading Disasters: One Thing Leads to Another

Airports were forced to delay flights, and many Maritimers were unable to use their credit and debit cards. Hurricane Harvey in Texas was orders of magnitude worse.
