Weekend Project: Optimize your cell phone plan (Canada Only)

Note: This is a very basic prototype and it not meant for consumers at this point and the pricing for the plans are not current.

I built a simple web service that compares Canadian cellphone plans. It can be found at http://cellgauge.alwaysdata.net. Just upload a previous bill from Rogers, Bell or Fido and get a recommendation on which plan you should be using. You also get graphs about your usage. Hosting is provided by alwaysdata for free so please excuse the speed of the site.

Limitations

  • Only reads Rogers, Bell or Fido bills
  • Only compares plans from Bell, Fido and Telus
  • Only compares based on monthly minutes in plan (charged using carrier rate if you go over), evenings and weekend usage, free 5 friends calling
  • No long distance support
  • The carrier’s plan data is not updated automatically
  • No text messaging or data support
