I'd take Yahoo & Microsoft getting into tier-1 and last mile before Cogeco.
That would be just as bad if not worse.
too bad it won't happen, but it's worth a bet.. I remember cogeco getting into squabbbles w/ level-3 on peering agreements before where cogeco was clearly in the wrong.. and what they do to Canadians is often much worse.
M/S & Yahoo would froth at the mouth to get into new markets with products. It certainly would be a challenge should google expand beyond the two state solution it currently has... (couldn't help but draw some global parallels here).
HAHA, suckers! Bit by bit, Canada *will* take over all of your internet and cable services...and you will forced to pay HUGE overage charges and be forced to watch Justin Beiber video's 24/7. -- If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough. - Albert Einstein
