No tied selling

There is ample precedent in the financial services world which prohibits tied selling.

The CRTC ought to lift a page from that book and require that all services purchased from incumbents must be offered a la carte, and at identical prices irrespective of whether you bundle or not.

I suppose there's merit to that, but considering the costs for a bundled service are actually lower than the previous rates for standalone, I can't see this being much of an issue.

The point is that you should not be REQUIRED to get cable TV service as a prerequisite to getting internet service.
