Submission + - "No math degree" law for cell phones in Manitoba->

Barbara, not Barbie writes: Tired of cell-phone contracts that have hidden cancellation fees or require a math degree to figure out? Manitoba has passed a law that requires the following:

Customers can cancel a contract before end of term, a ban on unreasonable cancellation fees and unilateral contract changes, minimum monthly cost to be included in advertisements, no charges while defective equipment is out of service unless it's your fault, and limits to automatic renewals.

Hopefully the law will "go viral" with politicians looking for a way to please disgruntled voters.
