Cell phone still a luxury to Canadians?
Canada made Blackberry may be the world?s most-popular or next-to-the-most-popular high-end smart phone but that doesn?t mean Canadians love cell phones to the ancient land-lines. In a latest report, Canada has the lowest mobile penetration followed by Mexico. Among 30 member countries surveyed by a Paris-based organization, Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), consumers in the U.S., Canada and Spain pay the highest mobile phone bills. I posted about the previous report of OECD in 2007 and nothing has changed in the last two years ? rates in Canada are still the highest and it is still the country with the lowest mobile penetration. Yes $85K mobile phone bill do make sense sometimes. In the same report, it is told that Italians have 150 mobile phone subscribers for every 100 residents.
