This order in council asks the CRTC not to intervene unless there is a market failure. Our entire policy is aimed at keeping the small ISPs in the market and in faciliting wholesale Internet access for ISPs so that there will be some competition. I believe that these measures fully comply with the instructions given by the government. At the same time, we realize that there are problems, namely, some people use the service more than others and it is not fair for heavy users to be subsidized by the smaller ones. Let's look at all of the markets. Take, for example, wireless. Usage is not unlimited. There is a basic package and, if someone exceeds the time allowed by the package, an additional amount has to be paid. We do the same thing with electricity, oil, etc. We are trying to apply this principle to small providers. The big providers already do this with their own clients. Now we want to try to broaden this approach.
