Dear Nathaniel, re: CRTC

Dear Nathaniel,

Government agencies in the pocket of giant corporations, yet again under a Liberal government? That isn’t why you got my vote, good sir. Stop Bell and Rogers from screwing over the competition yet again. Please phone anyone you know at the CRTC to rule against them.

Prices for the consumer are significantly cheaper in the USA where they have virtual carriers who buy bandwidth wholesale and provide more flexible options for consumers. Even more embarrassing is that one of the leading providers in the American market is a Canadian company:

ting.com

They advertise an average price of $23 per month!!!!  And yet they aren’t allowed to use the same business model in their home country. It’s outrageous. We need more competition and not less.

Please help to make this happen, Nathaniel.

 

Yours very sincerely,

Michael Auty
an East York resident.
