So maybe I should keep my legacy uncapped sympatico service?

I guess the $65/month I pay for my 7-meg sympatico HSE legacy un-capped service will be a real deal once the independents have their new retail rate structures ironed out?

This is like Bank of America saying they now need to charge $5/month on their debit cards to make up for all of those government regulations.

No matter what you have to get rid of your grandfathered account with sympatico. Like i said before they put you on the slow line on purpose. Go with Teksavvy or use the 8/1 business package with Rogers.

Pretty much. They need to make up their record profits because the big, bad government is now making them have remotely-consumer-friendly rules! Oh no!

When the gov't gets in to the rate setting business, you take the bad with the good. The independent ISPs got what they wanted - no UBB. But they got rates they don't like. Too bad. They wanted the gov't to force the incumbents to sell them wholesale access at a loss. They didn't pull that little feat off.

You have been following these events in Canada right? Because this comment really shows your ignorance. Sorry, but I can't agree with you this time. These IISP's did not go to the CRTC because they wanted Bell sell wholesale access at a loss; it was because Bell was trying to price gouge. Have you even read any of the submissions by Bell? I mean, what about following the Teksavvy forums? Please don't make comments about something that you haven't obviously followed or kept tabs on. Sigh.

Tails, you can see that T_Jefferson is very right wing. In T_Jefferson's world, the only thing the government can do that would make him happy is to let businesses rule the world, and privatize all government functions.

Who says they were selling at loss before? They in fact are making a good profit with the CURRENT rates. Bell says it will charge over $2000 per 100Mbit whereas Rogers says a bit over $1000 for the same thing.... who's scamming who? It can't really cost Bell 2x as much to provide transit over their network compared to Rogers. Even Rogers is way too high as a big ISP in Manitoba stated around $240 I believe per 100Mbit.

Fact is the incumbents were allowed to come up with any number without any audit to deem it fair

Excuse me? The IISPs prefered to keep the current deal, just Bell didn't want to, because it costed them to much costumers.

So the loop fee went down a bit, but the access fees were risen 1300%!!!! How can a telco defend such fees? And how can a government organization allow such a rise?

You'll still be able to get a 6Mbit package for almost half that price, uncapped.

And as we all know T_Jefferson is the former Darth Vader/MMH/Militier/TK Junkmail... who's been pushing the same "corporations can do no wrong" agenda for as long as we've all been on DSLr
