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.


  • 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
