Re: CNOC speed matching decision due next week

Will this decision determine whether start.ca can offer unlimited bandwidth?

They can already do that if they wanted hard enough but the price point likely would not generate many sales.

I am not expecting the CBB hearings to bring the CBB rates anywhere near as low as people here hope they will go, at least not without revised (increased) per-access rates. I am betting on rates around 8k$/Gbps, which is 50-70% less than current rates but still 4-6X more what some people around here are hoping for.

I suspect $8k/Gbps will be the low end of the possible range. It could be as high as $12k/Gbps.

8k$/Gbps (Telus' former AHSSPI rate) is near the optimistic end of my range too.

When I tried guesstimating how much incumbents could charge for aggregation if they built an entire new network for that explicit purpose, I came up with figures as high as 35k$/Gbps.

The only reason Bell would have to build a separate aggregation network would be to avoid using an "All Carriers" approach to their cost studies - it is neither technically or economically efficient.

The CRTC's rate-setting process does not reward technical nor economic efficiency.

But they do look for (and find) gaming of the cost studies process.
