Re: What if it happened here?

said by MaynardKrebs:

Would incumbents deny indies access to the fiber?
Would the CRTC act in time, if at all, to prevent the demise of indies?
Are indies SOL if this happens?

I'd be willing to bet that were a situation like this to occur, it would end up in federal court - either by bell crying that they shouldn't have to give access to their fibre and should instead be allowed to get a return on their investment on their own, or by whatever organizations who previously utilized copper but were denied fibre crying that Bell has been able to put themselves back into a monopoly situation by what is ultimately infrastructure repair rather than replacement/renewal.

It would be interesting to watch, to say the least.

If that sort of event happened, you would most likely see the CRTC force wholesale of fibre services on the basis that competition advances the public interest.

To which, Bell will cry to cabinet, federal court and anywhere else they can to try and keep fibre theirs and theirs alone.
