QUESTIONS FROM OILCHANGE.COM TO YOU
We have received many comments from supporters saying we have to do more than just send the petition to make a difference.
#1 Some have suggested there be a peaceful and organized rally / protest when we deliver the petition to Rogers.
#2 There have since been other offers from Rogers competition that are more competitive and some have suggested people cancel their Rogers contracts and that we start a separate petition that keeps count of how many people have canceled their Rogers contracts.
What are your thoughts?
There are a number of questions and concerns from supporters that Oilchange.com would like to address. Below you will find frequently asked questions and answers.
Q: Are you affiliated with any telecommunications company?
A: No, we are full service web design and Internet marketing company that has no affiliation with any telecom company. We do however advertise Oilchange.com on 680 News, a Rogers owned radio station and we do pay for some other Rogers services and none of those services involve cell phone plans.
Q: Why are you taking over a grassroots movement?
A: When we found out about this petition and heard about the data plans Rogers was offering for the upcoming launch we were as disappointed as everyone else. Our executives used to be on Rogers wireless plans and they were too expensive so we then switched to Telus and they too ended up being too expensive. We now use Verizon cell phones and save a significant amount of money and can travel all over Canada and the US and not pay extra for roaming fees or long distance charges.
When we saw the site go down under control of the original site owner we felt strongly enough about this issue to acquire it and make sure the petition continues to grow without interruptions especially when momentum was building. As a corporate entity we have more resources to manage this website and take it to higher levels. The Paypal donation button has been removed because Oilchange.com is taking on the cost of this website. We have added video content to Youtube, accelerated the petition sign ups and are making adjustments to the website on a daily basis.
We are behind this petition 100%.
Q: What did you do with all the Paypal donations?
A: Oilchange.com has not received any payment from Paypal Donations. We are taking on all the costs associated with this website. The previous owner has told us to notify everybody that he used the funds to market the site and did not use any funds for himself.
Q: What’s your motivation?
A: The Rogers pricing of their iPhone 3G data plans is just one example of many in this country where Canadians are being overcharged. There are countless examples in every sector. We have created a platformCanadians.com to expose all of these price differences to make a difference here and obtain more competitive pricing on goods and services, more choice and ultimately put more money back in Canadian pockets.
Q: There have been some duplicate entries in the petition, what are you going to do about this?
A: We scrub the site once a day for duplicates and other spam posts.
