Make Wireless Better

It's clear we need better wireless service in Canada.

Check out this Petition for Bill C-555, which aims to make wireless carriers behave themselves.

What I don't understand is how Rogers, Bell, and Telus believe they are actually making a better deal for themselves. It's common sense that confusing billing means lower adoption. Lower adoption means less overall revenue.

The carriers are definitely making good revenue, but it could be so much better for everybody. Lower tech support costs, happier customers, and significantly more uptake.

There's potential, but it seems to be blocked by a combination of greed and fear. Fear that they'll lose a massive chunk of revenue, and the repercussion by their shareholders. I guess when your company gets so large it becomes terrifying to make a bold entrepreneurial moves.

Village of Pemberton Map

The Pemberton Music Festival will be kicking off fairly soon. It is scheduled for July 25-27 and should make some big waves out here on the coast (even though its in the Interior of BC). With names like NIN, Jay-Z, Coldplay, The Flaming Lips, and many many others it should be great time for all.

CellMap has been working with the Chamber of Commerce in putting together a map of the Village of Pemberton. The map has gas stations, a pharmacy, food, and retail stores worth noting in case you need anything you forgot at home.

Check out the map at:

Let us know if there's anything we forgot or something you want to see on it. We hope this makes life easier for all visitors to Pemberton.
