Looking at a report by Tefficient, Motherboard notes that Canadians are getting a "raw deal" when it comes to data on a smartphone. Reportedly, Canadians pay the most yet use the least amount of data compared to other countries.

[...] Canada’s telecom industry is notoriously moribund, with just three established players making up a kind of oligopoly that account for the vast majority of mobile subscriptions in the country — Rogers, Bell Canada, and Telus. It’s one of Canada’s many curious ironies that a company headquartered in Toronto runs a successful affordable mobile phone service in the US — Ting by Tucows — but has thus far been unable to operate in its home country.
