Compare Wireless Phone Plans - Canadian Monthly Plans

Compare wireless phone plans in Canada!  With so many options now available, figuring out the right plan to meet your needs has become increasingly more difficult.  Fortunately, I've created the table below to help you untangle the wild wild west that is prepaid wireless.  It will definitely help you compare wireless phone plans from companies offering Monthly Plans in Canada.


Aside from the obvious big three, there are other smaller, and no longer all that new, no contract wireless providers that have entered the Canadian market over the past decade.  They are also included here, and offer a good point of comparison to "the big players" that have always dominated.  The presence of these newer companies definitely raised the bar, and we've see all carriers in Canada evolve in recent years to appropriately respond to the changing attitudes of prepaid in Canada.


As the market changes so rapidly, please check back often, or sign up for my free newsletter, Prepaid Wireless Tracker, to keep in touch with prepaid wireless news, and what's new with the site, to ensure you'll know when the table is updated!  You can also find other Canadian prepaid cell phone plans (ex. PAYG & Daily) by visiting the Compare Wireless Phone Service In Canada section.
