Re: money and mouths
said by tmc8080:The geography of the country makes laying infrastructure prohibitively expensive in relation to population density. You could possibly pull it off in a few of the major areas like GTA, GMA, GVA or southwestern Ontario.
netflix, google and others should begin becoming their OWN ISPs.. the incumbents in Canada have had it TOO GOOD FOR TOO LONG! New providers need to diversify the market and ensure unlimited and fast access is just that for an affordable pricetag!
Google should do 1gbit+ FTTH deployments in Canada too! Just to prove to BellCa, Rogers & the rest of the schlub isps that it's well past time to put up or shut up about giving the customer more for less!
With a larger landmass and 1/10th the population of our neighbours to the south, it's a tough sell for any company to come in and lay the needed infrastructure.
I'm going to run the numbers on teksavvy, and if I can ditch cable for netflix, that would just be amazing. Boxee/etc all fail due to regional content restrictions.

Heck, I'd just hack the Boxee or feed it through a U.S. Proxy or VPN.
Apparently the sites detect if you use a proxy =/
