    chatr wireless is canada’s new unlimited talk and text brand Delivering Worry-free service on a trusted network

    Toronto, ON – July 28, 2010 – chatr wireless today announced its entry into the Canadian market offering Canadians unlimited talk and text on a trusted network. chatr will offer cost certainty and freedom from term contracts, with zone-based plans including unlimited talk for just $35 per month and unlimited talk and text for just $45 per month. To start, the service will be available in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto, and Ottawa with plans to launch soon in Montreal.

    “Canadians have indicated they want unlimited talk and text with simple, worry-free plans on a network that is trusted to deliver quality service,” said Garrick Tiplady, Senior Vice President, chatr. “With chatr, customers will have a no worry, talk happy experience.”

    Operating on the global standard of GSM and HSPA technology platforms, chatr customers can benefit from great handsets at great prices, the strength of 3G technology, and a worry-free talk and text experience. The chatr network has fewer dropped calls than new wireless carriers because it has more cellular sites, better indoor and underground reception, and a seamless Canadian network. chatr will offer quality name-brand phones starting from $60: Nokia 1661, Nokia 2680, LG GB125r, and Samsung Gravity.

    With an upbeat brand identity that includes a bright orange talk bubble, chatr promises to provide a friendly option to customers with its “no worries, talk happy” phone plans.

    The service will be available for purchase at chatr stores in major malls and through hundreds of retail locations in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto, and Ottawa with plans to launch soon in Montreal.

    I was surprised to see a Kiosk at Metrotown today, seems like they're wasting no time with this new brand.

    Chat-R already has way more stores selling product than Moblicity + WIND + Public combined
    This alone will help them take the lions share of the market
    It is sad I need to state the obvious but some people just don't get it. Any posts I make are my own OPINIONS and in no way represent the views of my employer

    No "stores: that I have seen in downtown Toronto (not listed on the website, but available in way more locations: Best Buy and Furture Shop, Wireless Wave, The Booth, etc. In the dealers, chat-r is taking up about 2 sq ft of floor space for it's display stand. That can't be costing very much compared to the sales/commissions it will generate.

    Makes me wonder if these national-chain dealers were advised that chat-r was coming and not to add Wind/Mobilicity to their dealership if they valued the relationship with Rogers Wireless OR if Wind/Mobi~ just had other strategies OR the national dealers just don't see a future for Wind/Mobi~.
