BeanBunny writes: A Saskatchewan, Canada court has ruled that a $12 billion class-action suit can proceed. The suit alleges that "system access fees" that the cellphone companies have charged ($7-9 per month) are unfair and constitute price gouging. From the article: "It is described as the largest class-action in Canadian history, potentially affecting every cellphone user in the country. Currently, there are 7,500 complainants signed onto the suit."

  • If this goes through and then every Canadian with a cell phone joins and by some miracle they win... Would this be enough of hit to the companies to put any of them out of buisness?
  • I personally would like to see these go away. Why would I need to pay an extra fee on something I'm already paying for? Build the fee into your monthly plan!
