Our 2020 vision: a new decade of service innovation alongside network investment

2020 will kick off a new decade of wireless service innovation and network investment in Canada, starting with the introduction of independent tiny telecoms. Thanks to innovative MVNOs, this will be the first time our country experiences real competition in the wireless market.

Building a Telco with Flutter

We’re building a telco that also happens to be an app, or, we're building an app that also happens to be a telco. Whichever way you look at it, everything you expect from your wireless provider needs to be inside our app. It's more than traditional telco self-care, it needs to do more than display usage, push bill notifications, and upsell shiny new phones.  Our app needs to do it all. 

Fix it! - No service at the Raptors parade?

Were you affected by the wireless problems during the Raptor's victory parade? Even if you weren't able to be there (like me), there's a good chance you've encountered the same problem: lots of bars of signal on your phone but nothing works. How can we improve this experience?

We invited our founding members to participate in a usability study, sharing early versions of the bottom navigation icons for our app.  We’ve compiled the results and are ready to share them, as well as revealing what the icons actually mean!

Build it! Improved Security for Two-factor Authentication Over SMS

Is your wireless phone number secure? Wireless service providers play a role in preventing SIM hijacking and unauthorized port-outs.

Build it! Data Throttling Detection

The big telecoms finally have unlimited plans, a welcome relief from typically punitive overages. Despite what they want you to believe, however, there is nothing innovative about their approach. Freedom Mobile has been doing unlimited data for years, starting all the way back to when they were still called WIND; so for the better part of a decade, many Canadians have had their data throttled.

Coming to Canada? My experience with the wireless plans here

I remember how a day after I landed in Canada, back in May, one of the first things I wanted was a Canadian number! Even though a few of my friends had warned me about the high charges, it was not until I went to buy a new number for myself did I realize how real the prices were!

Designing a more private wireless service

At dotmobile, we are designing our services in a manner that respects and protects your personal information. Most wireless service providers don’t openly talk about what happens with your personal information, and we want to change that. In this post, we are providing an overview of our design of privacy. Let us know if we’re on the right track in comments or by emailing us at privacy@dotmobile.app. We look forward to reading your thoughts.
