This morning, American media got all frenzied about a new rule imposed by the Canadian government. Starting December 1st, all cellphones bought from a cell carrier in Canada have to come unlocked out of the box, and the carriers can’t charge a fee for the service.
This is a great and much-needed thing for Canadian consumers. But Americans don’t really need to worry about losing the “land of the free” competition any time soon: although you might still have to pay a fee to unlock phones in America, at least the networks don’t massively suck.
