At least wireless networks compete a little in Canada... But most of the price hikes and changes still occurs, it's just that small competition seems to exist between small wireless companies like Virgin Mobile and Koodo.
There needs to be competition on larger businesses though in order to see more changes, but because the system practically lets whoever owns the network to capitalize it entirely, that is moot.
I wonder though, it should be possible to work around that, like how Google built new lines and networks on top of what's existing, without needing to go through them.
The problem now is in other articles... Incumbents now are using the law to prevent this from happening in the US, and they also try to do this in Canada using the CRTC...
