A complete failure of regulation


I asked Ben Klass what this graph means. He replied:


” This graph shows that in Canada: 


a.) mobile carriers charge substantially more per GB than they do in other countries; and

b.) on average, monthly plans include less data in Canada than they do in other countries.


Notably this chart shows Canada’s per GB retail rate at approximately the same level as the wholesale tariff rate for mobile approved by the CRTC in 2018. Which means that the wholesale rates are too high. I have pointed this out to the CRTC in several proceedings now but they don’t seem concerned for reasons that I imagine are obvious to you all.



More evidence that the Canadian carriers are charging what the traffic can bear, and then some. “
