Re: There goes the neighbourhood - Cogeco to buy Peer 1

said by Guspaz:

Bell already directly competes with companies like Peer1, and it's not particularly hard to start up a new such company (it doesn't have the massive cost wall like the wireless or last-mile businesses do).

As well as Shaw and Rogers.

Cogeco can afford to raise Peer1's prices. Cologix (formerly Canix) tried to slap me with an 86% price increase via a bogus "cable maintenance" charge at the end of my contract this year. The colocation industry is taking advantage of the growing cloud industry and the growing need for colocation space by jacking up the prices across the board.

At this rate, It'll be cheaper for me to build my own datacenter.
