SyrupCast

This week on the SyrupCast, Igor Bonifacic, Patrick O'Rourke, Rose Behar, and Ian Hardy talk about the LG G6 and Toronto City Council's plea to the CRTC for unlimited data.

This week marks the Canadian launch of LG's newest flagship phone, the G6. Following the recent release of Samsung's Galaxy S8, the SyrupCast crew is asking if this is a swing and a miss for LG? Does a $100 price difference make any difference to someone in the market for a new high-end smart phone?

It is no secret that Canadian's pay exorbitant amounts for cell phone plans in comparison to other countries, and MobileSyrup has gone into great detail covering this issue many times in the past.

This week, Toronto's City Council has jumped on the bandwagon by introducing a motion asking the CRTC to pursue getting all major Canadian carriers to offer reasonably priced unlimited data plans. The motion passed, but the SyrupCast team is skeptical of the true intent behind the discussion and whether it will actually lead to any change.

Tune in to hear the SyrupCast team's thoughts and jump in the comments to let us know what you think of this week's episode.
