Will CNOC look for LTE reseller status?

The looming battleground....not that CNOC members can resell fibre yet anyway, much less LTE

LOL, why... The caps are so silly on wireless, you'd think that even if there was some wholesale model established, the capacity pricing would be stupid expensive too...

Simply because it's the next thing in the evolution of delivering internet access to retail customers along the continuum of the electromagnetic spectrum.

Or are you suggesting that when Bell/Rogers say that they aren't going to deliver internet access for any new/replacement orders via landline, that the battle should begin then?

You are much better off for PC or any one of the existing mobile "reseller" for LTE than CNOC. They already have a business relationship with the big 3 and have staff that at least familiar with the products.

Mobile is not even in CNOC market space. Good luck to get any support scripts that doesn't involve customers paying out of their own pockets buying new modems to test simple issues. With the incumbents, it is a matter swapping one for free. Seen too many of those next door in some of the not wanted to be named ISP forum.

Sorry folks if the customer has seen the cable modem status/signal strength page, there is no point to see if the Ethernet cable or the router is bad or the UPS or the wall wart. You have already verified the datapath and the all the equipment is getting power. It is a waste of time for everybody and only show the lack of diagnostic knowledge for the people that prepare/read their script.

Japan doesn't have wireless data caps. Their LTE services are all unlimited. So their LTE services actually compete with hardwired broadband services.

That's very far from the case here; the incumbents like Bell or Rogers think 2GB per month is an incredibly generous data allocation, and 6GB per month is like some sort of inexhaustible well of bits.

I don't think they think it's generous at all, it's just what they can get away with in a colluded market with a captured regulator.

As in just enough for CRTC not to intervene.

In any other developed country, you can get FTTH for less than 100 bucks too.

Canada just sucks for some reason. Oh wait....thse red and blue demons.

You can get FTTH for under $100 in Canada too. All new Bell Canada deployments are FTTH, and they're in the process of converting existing customers, slowly.
