FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Halifax, NS - Eastlink shared today its support of the Province’s proposed amendments to the Consumer Protection Act that provide additional protections for consumers entering cell phone contracts.
“The legislation tabled today by the Province is an important step towards providing consumers with more choice and competition in the wireless market,” said Matthew MacLellan, president of Eastlink Wireless. “It ensures that consumers are treated fairly and have access to the information and flexibility they need to choose the wireless service they want.”
MacLellan stated that this new policy enables consumers to take advantage of new offerings in the market giving them the right to cancel service without heavy penalties. "We are pleased to work with the government on this legislation, which will make it easier for consumers to choose their service provider and take advantage of competitive offerings.”
Eastlink has and continues to operate on a foundation that puts the customer first.
“We strive to earn our customers’ business everyday rather than rely on onerous contract termination fees,” noted MacLellan. "We are pleased that the Province’s amendments to the Consumer Protection Act reflect that same philosophy.”
The Nova Scotia-based company confirmed its intention to continue working cooperatively with government during the regulatory process for this bill.
