    TORONTO, Nov. 12 /CNW/ - Fido has raised the bar in customer
satisfaction, earning top rank in the contract service segment of any mobile
communications provider in Canada, a major study revealed last week. The 2007

customers with their service, mobile phone and retail experience. Conducted
independently by researchers J.D. Power and Associates, the study revealed

quality, cost of service, customer service and service plan options. Fido is
the only postpaid national carrier consistently above industry average across
the five factors as determined by J.D. Power and Associates. Moreover, Fido
