Re: Will CNOC look for LTE reseller status?

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.
