Re: Bell Canada's financials and UBB

I've been complaining about that for a while too. The equivalent of Sarbanes–Oxley applied through the CRTC would work fine.

Sarbanes-Oxley has been excellent for the financial industry (as much as they like to state otherwise) it forced accountability at all levels.

It's also Shaw being candid with investors and liars to the CRTC.

In the future, we believe our usage based billing plan will enable the further monetization of our Internet business as data usage becomes more prevalent and common amongst our customer base (ie. streaming of video)

Slide 19
Over-the-top applications (i.e. Global TV website, Hulu etc.) relating to the viewing of traditional broadcasting will become more common in the future and management of content will help mitigate this risk to our core business

Let's be clear in all this:
Monetizing / monetization are code words for "profit centre", and not "cost recovery" or "behaviour modification".

This would be fine within the right price range but at these prices it's meant to recoup lost cable subs and then some.

"And then some" must include the failed buy-out, the spending freeze while awaiting the buy-out and the re-inflation of the apparent stock value.

A little off topic, well maybe not. Not about financials but some quotes from some transcripts.

Telecom Notice of Consultation CRTC 2009-261-7
Notice of hearing 31 May 2010

MR. BIBIC:
7900 ..We appealed to Cabinet on the basis that wholesale speed matching rules would affect investment. Clearly Cabinet agreed, otherwise they would have rejected the petition, just as they rejected MTS' petition on the same day seeking to stop ethernet forbearance and seeking more unbundling.

7901 .. I appreciate that you are struggling with the potential impacts of the absence of forced access on ISPs. It is a difficult issue. But your role, respectfully, is not to protect them, and you acknowledge that in paragraph 39 of your essential facilities decision to which TELUS made reference this morning.See More

7902 ..There is ample retail competition. ISPs have options.

7903 ..Cabinet did not ask this Commission to reconsider its own speed matching rule in order to get the same decision back, or worse, a decision with yet more unbundling.

7904 Thank you.

This shoulb be on top of my previous post.
ý6.In referring the decisions back to the Commission for reconsideration, the Governor in Council stated that she considers it material to this reconsideration for the Commission to consider whether
(a) the speed matching requirements unduly diminish the incentives to invest in new network infrastructure in general and, in particular, in markets of different sizes;
(b) in the absence of the speed matching requirements there would be sufficient competition to protect the interests of users;
(c) the respective wholesale obligations imposed on incumbent telephone and cable companies are equitable or represent a competitive disadvantage; and
(d) the impact of these wholesale requirements unduly impairs the ability of incumbent telephone companies to offer new converged services, such as Internet Protocol television (IPTV).

Seems the long term plan is to drive out wholesale isp's so that Bell can sell the indie isp's customers IPTV.
