As many people who are concerned about fair internet prices know, the CRTC recently launched a new proceeding to examine the costing inputs that go into the tariffs which companies like VMedia have to pay to get wholesale access to the big players’ internet facilities. In keeping with our mission to be a leader in fighting for fair wholesale prices so that we can offer the best and most affordable internet services to Canadians, VMedia has filed an intervention to provide comments which we hope will persuade the CRTC to change those costing inputs, and more importantly make the costing process fully transparent, so that the unjustifiably high current wholesale rates can be adjusted downward. Only then can Canadians be assured of a robust competitive market in which they will not be exploited by being made to pay excessive uneconomic prices for what is clearly an important and essential service in everyone’s life.
Please have a look at our submission here. It would be great to hear your views.
