Give it up buddy.

Judging by how cheap you sound you probably have a cell phone bill less than $75/month, but ill give you the benefit:

lets say you pay $100/month, average month has 720 hours in it. Even if the network was down for "half the day as you claim" (which it wasn't), that would equate to 12 hours.

100/720=14 cents/hour * 12 hours of outage = $1.66.

You really going to waste your time for less than $2. Get a life.

It says on their website they will credit you back their post paid customer's a day's worth of service.

When this happened when I was in LA with AT&T, they immediately asked if I wanted to cancel and pay an early cancellation fee on top of it all.

My Fido didn't go down

On other news..
The Canadian government's wireless policy is clear - Industry Canada

Govt seems pissed at Rogers/Telus/Bell for making up shit, so they did a counter-attack add supporting "Verizon" to come to Canada. Govt seems to promote more choices, lower prices, better service and to make Telus/Bell/Rogers suffer.

to our govt for once.

FYI
I did not ask for any compensation or filed a complaint.
I was merely stating that it was more than couple of hours.

and of course, for ppl like you who only use phone for chit chatting with your friends, half day outage is only worth $2.
I was stuck in the office for whole day, so it didn't matter to me but for ppl who work on the road.... try telling them half day without a phone is only worth $2....

Our entire headoffice is on the rogers network, and I know it caused a lot of problems when this happened, especially for all the road warriors that have access to a landline for conference calls and and such.
