GATINEAU, Que. - The second day of CRTC hearings on a proposed wireless code are underway.
The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunication Commission aims to set national standards for the content and clarity of cellphone contracts.
Today, the telecom regulator has heard from Telus, the Canadian Internet Policy and Public Interest Clinic, OpenMedia.ca and academics.
Rogers Communications is slated to appear this afternoon.
Much of the testimony so far has focused on the length of cellphone contracts, locked devices and roaming and cancellation fees.
The Gatineau, Que., hearings are scheduled to last all week.
