Fear and Misinformation

The ehmac boards are alight with stories of Rogers employees telling them that "They can expect a $5000 phone bill" without getting a data plan, and that Rogers is charging data on Wifi. These seems a classic case of FUDing with the clients to try and force them into a data plan. If the latter turns out to be the case, though, you can expect a full scale iPhone revolt. 

In other news, the Spectrum auction is at round 251, and should be over soon. I haven't been following every twist and turn, but there should be at least one competitor to Rogers spawned by this in the GSM space, though that might take a couple years....
