tefficient noted that most mobile service providers are no longer trying to make money from SMS usage or voice talk minutes, but are now making revenue by offering data and plan allowances for a flat fee.

But Edmonton and Toronto might get World Cup games...
Soccer fans in Montreal will be sad to find out that Montreal won't host any 2026 FIFA World Cup games because the city has withdrawn its bid.
As confirmed by Canada Soccer and the City of Montreal on Tuesday morning, "following the withdrawal of a major financial partner" and a "lack of funding," according to a city press release, Montreal is backing out of the selection process and won't host any games.
The honours instead, will go to Toronto and Edmonton, according to Canada Soccer, who are maintaining their bids in the selection process to be host cities for the 2026 World Cup, which will be split between Canada, the U.S. and Mexico.
For its part, Montreal pointed to the Quebec government and claimed that "the withdrawal of support from the Quebec government prevents Montreal from continuing the selection stages as the host city for the 2026 FIFA World Cup."
"We thank the City of Montréal for their participation in the bid process and look forward to continuing our collaboration with the respective municipal and provincial governments along with the Government of Canada in support of the selection of Edmonton, Alberta and Toronto, Ontario as host cities for the FIFA World Cup 2026," Canada Soccer wrote in a press release.
Toronto, meanwhile, came in at number 12, just missing out on a top 10 spot. Vancouver ranked quite low on the list, coming in at 39th overall.
Other Canadian cities didn't even rank in the top 75.
Above Montreal are, from first to eighth place, Melbourne, Dubai, Sydney, Tallinn, London, Tokyo, Singapore and Glasgow.
