The CRTC's report, prepared by Nordicity Group, on Canadian telecom prices shows that we pay some of the highest rates in the world. Citing the National Post,
Canada won gold for the most expensive low-end wireless telephone service and landed silver for premium mobile phone services that include more minutes and data, according to the ninth-annual international telecom price comparison study commissioned by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission.
It also landed in the Top Three for the most expensive broadband Internet, bundled services and mobile data, which costs about three times as much here as it does in the U.K., Italy and Australia, according to the report by consultancy Nordicity Group Ltd. that compared prices for landlines, wireless telephone and broadband services, broadband Internet and bundled services.
I would like to make some suggestions as to how this comes about, and what might be done to correct it.
