Because competition is higher in Ontario on pricing/speed and we negotiated better rates so we pass the saving to our clients instead of banking the extra profit.

Negotiated? Isn't this the same offer Bell made to all wholesale ISPs?

Don't mean to hijack. But you must see how important this is, right? To me, it means the rates submitted by the incumbents to the CRTC are not based on costs, but on local competition, i.e. how much profits they can get away with. If the rates are not based on costs, yet rates are lower, then costs must also be lower, then the CRTC must review the whole thing and issue new lower rates accordingly.

/end of hijack

In a perfect world this would be the case. But unfortunatly for all of us. We are far from a perfect world and the crtc is not here for the public but for the big corporations. We just got proof of this a few weeks ago with there new rates on cable service's.
