The Regulator

What regulates Cogeco. Is it the CRTC?

and

America is portrayed by a few Canadians as being a nation corrupted by business. I guess the implied solution is a more powerful government.
The stories I read don't support that ideology.

Neither gov nor corp is a reliable friend to us.
Perhaps the best we can hope for is that they are at each others throat; and that we are free of them for a while.

The CRTC allowed the telco's to implement economic ITMP's (Internet Traffic Management Programs) without any parameters and of course the Telco's took full advantage of this.

Thanks to government regulation my ISP can exist and offer unlimited. That being said I'm still jealous of Americans with FIOS. Government and corporations are usually one in the same when it comes to telecom in any country. I hate most of the CRTC decisions but key decisions by them have given me the option for unlimited. Would our internet be better without regulation?... I'm really not sure. In Sweden it seems to work... North America not so much.
