    Bell, Rogers and Telus tie for Canada’s most trusted carrier: survey

    Just goes to show that people don't inform themselves very well.

    Ottawa partners with Telesat to bring high-speed internet to remote Canadian regions

    AWESOME! It is nice to see the government actually take the initiative instead of waiting for the current players to fulfill their obligations to the Canadian taxpayer. I wish the CRTC would stand up and take notice that the market is so badly under-served by the current providers that the...

    Not a review just yet, just wondering other's thoughts really. I am doing the trial right now and it seems like a pretty good deal for only $20/month. I'm not a big sports guy but have recently returned to watching boxing lately and they definitely have a lot of content for that. My 4K Tv...

    No Longer a “Proposed” Telecom Policy Direction: Government Resets Canadian Telecom Policy With Emphasis on Broader Approach to Competition

    Well at least if Mr. Scott refuses to do anything, the government is now forcing his hand. I still feel the best avenue would be to replace him as CRTC chair immediately but this is a definite step in the right direction!!

    Chris Seidl to the Standing Committee on Industry, Science and Technology

    Why is it that we are suddenly seeing all of these PR releases from the CRTC when, on the other hand, they have taken absolutely 0 actions on the most important decisions on their docket and have not only closed the door, but completely slammed it in the face of each and every Canadian in...

    Rogers Calls for Expansion of Media Bailout to Cover Broadcast Organizations…and Thinks Netflix Should Pay For It

    Yet another corporate welfare scam because companies refuse to change their archaic business model. This is even worse because Rogers is going on the attack against a company the initiated technological change in their landscape and delivered a model that customers want. Hey Rogers, instead of...

    Telecom regulatory policy 2019-190

    Added the English link as well as the French link. Basically the changes are to, once again, reduce public transparency into this process. While applications may be made public, large sections of those submissions can be deemed confidential and hidden from public viewing. It is yet another...

    CRTC launches the Broadband Fund to improve Internet and mobile wireless access

    The key here is "mobile wireless access." This should not even be part of this Broadband Initiative. In underserved areas, this gives the likes of Bell carte blanche to forego the cheaper wireline access to customers and continue to force them to the multitude more expensive mobile plans with...

    Ian Scott to the Canadian Telecom Summit “Fostering Choice, Innovation and Better Prices for Canadians”

    To be extremely frank, I had a hard time keeping down my dinner while reading this. There has never been, as far back as I can remember, such a period of inaction, avoidance of action, lack of transparency and outright and very public disdain by the CRTC towards not only the Canadian public but...

    Island Life Backpackers Hostel-Santo Domingo-Dominican Republic

    Let me preface this review by saying I have never stayed in a hostel previous to this trip so I really did not know what to expect. I have to say I was extremely pleasantly surprised. So much so that I would now chose a hostel stay over that of staying on a resort or in a hotel. I have...

    As US Stream-Ripping Increases, Almost Half of Rippers Are Educated & Affluent

    I do have to admit while I do have a spotify account and find the price very reasonable, due to data costs, etc I would very much like to be able to access songs offline conveniently. The music industry is still miles ahead in adapting to the technological landscape than both the tv/movie and...

    Bell Wants Canada to Criminalize Pirate Streaming Services

    Ya, that is just what we want--Bell dictating which sites we are allowed to visit and which sites are "harmful to the general public interest." It would be worse than a Chinese firewall. Perhaps instead of making all your potential customers criminals, and treating the general public as a...

    No Mandated Netflix Cancon Payments: Shaw Argues Success Lies in More Regulatory Flexibility in BTLR Submission

    Wow, one of the big telecom companies actually using common sense!! Seems to me that Shaw sees the line in the sand and the forthcoming demise of traditional cable services which is why they took the stance they did whereby Bell will forever cling to their archaic and greedy business model and...

    Official 2018 - 2019 NHL Thread

    I actually stopped following altogether. While I was in the Dominican, I got into the World Championships which was some excellent hockey to watch. The owner of the bar actually let me cast some games on the big screen there and they got to witness a crazy cannuck yelling at the tv for 3 hours...

    Canadians who are dissatisfied with communication providers don’t switch providers: report

    Why switch providers when they are basically all the same? It is a constant dance for those of us who do so I don't blame the majority of the population for not doing so.

    Chris Seidl to the annual conference of the BC Broadband Association

    But how do you set rates without examining the interconnections as that would be a major factor in those rates? I don't see a decision prior to election time, either that or it will be an extremely favorable one on the side of the incumbents if there is as this is not a major public facing...

    Chris Seidl to the annual conference of the BC Broadband Association

    Jesus christ, if they delay much longer, they might as well close the doors on TPIA's themselves. What a bunch of bullshit!

    Avengers: Endgame Leaks Online in China, Begins to Spread

    To be clear, this is not a leak of the movie but a cam copy of the movie. Big distinction.

    Hi All, I will post a review soon but and their representative here have been removed from this site. Long story short, I placed an order with them in March and still have yet to receive it. 4 times the shipping date has been moved and this last time, Clark didn't even have the...
