In respond to the growing public outcry over facing less bandwidth coupled with higher prices, one of the senior Conservative government officials admitted that Prime Minister Harper and the Minister of Industry would reverse this ruling if only the CRTC doesn’t do it itself.

Discontent of the Canadian citizens keeps growing over the implementing the CRTC’s decision which allows Bell Canada to switch to usage-based billing for their GAS users. The decision will only lead to higher prices and less bandwidth, so the Conservative government brought its attention to the development.

Just a few days ago the country’s Minister of Industry, Tony Clement, said that the government is planning to review the ruling in question in order to make sure that competition, innovation and consumers are all fairly considered. Tony Clement explained that it’s his job to encourage a competitive marketplace and to make sure that the citizens have real choices in the services they pay for.

Meanwhile, the CRTC ruling did none of those things. It just makes Bell Canada’s GAS users to run their networks just like it runs its own, thus depriving subscribers of meaningful competition in the marketplace. The first sign of harm has already been noticed by TekSavvy‘s customers, who recently knew that since the very beginning of March, usage-based billing will be introduced in Ontario and Quebec. The new plan includes drop of monthly data allotment from 200GB (or even unlimited) to a mere 25GB per month, plus extra fees.

The Conservative government seems to be the first to finally realize that this controversial ruling will only have negative impact on consumer choice and competition in the marketplace. It was first to announce in public that it will reverse the decision. Some unnamed senior Conservative government official said that the CRTC shouldn’t remain under illusion, as the Prime Minister is soon to reverse the ruling unless the CRTC does it first. He also added that “if they don’t reconsider, we’ll reverse the decision ourselves”. Well, if no-one will, the Canadians may well find themselves using the second class broadband connections which would undoubtedly limit their ability to participate in an increasingly digital world.

julio99 avatarThe CRTC are a bunch of no brain idiots anyway. I don't even know why that agency exists. They get nothing done there for Canadians except making us mad at them for the most part.
