New JF submission for TN28-30. Haven't read it yet.
Basically JF is stating this:
1) The CRTC is giving preference to Rogers over Bell in allowing a cost increase for the speed tiers. The commission already stated that Bell is to give the same speed upgrades at no cost. So if the CRTC allows Rogers to increase costs Bell can & will file an undue preference and demand the same.
This in turn will also justify Bell increasing rates for no reason.
In addition the CRTC will disregard & toss out previous policy.
Also, JF points out the lies you caught them in which the CRTC is once again ignoring.
Both resellers and customers of resellers will be getting price increases.
if the CRTC allows this a an of worms will be opened for price hikes across the board for everything. Be prepared for price hikes to your 3rd party internet provider. Both cable and DSL for each miniscule 1-meg increase.
In addition to the raising of rates for all 3rd party internet service, Bell and rogers will undercut price since the CRTC is allowing & putting price hikes in stone for resellers but not for the incumbents, Bell, Rogers et al.
Simply put, the CRTC is tossing out speed match policies and also creating new pricing policies.
It's pretty clear Bell is going to jump on the band-wagon. And if the CRTC refuses then Bell can state the CRTC is giving Rogers a competitive advantage.
However, the CRTC already said Cable-co costs are more than DSL in a previous ruling. So this is the only wiggle room I see for both CNOC and the CRTC to use to disapprove a Bell rate hike. And this one point may be weak.
CNOC turn in this chess match.
Ressa went ignored.
