Industry committee  You've made all sorts of statements here. I'll have to take them one by one. First of all, we have a booming telecom sector. I don't think we're a digital backwater at all. We are leading. We're also leading in terms of the regulatory. For instance, last year we were the first

Industry committee  First of all, we're only talking about residential. We're not talking about commercial, okay? This is the decision before us. Secondly, on the caps, which is really the core of your question, if I understand it correctly, as I mentioned in my speech, our communications report sa

Industry committee  --they are way beyond that.

Industry committee  Bell's cap in Ontario is 25 gigabytes, and in Quebec it's 60. The average use is 15, so there's a big difference there. There's a huge amount of homes between those two.

Industry committee  My job is all about that. It's all about balance between competing interests, between large providers and small providers, between providers and consumers, etc. That's what we do, and the way we do it is we have a hearing and we ask everybody to come forward with their best ideas

Konrad W. von Finckenstein

Industry committee  As I said, we will issue a notice saying we are redoing this, please comment, etc. This is the principle I just enunciated here: the ordinary user should not subsidize the heavy users. You know what we did. Does this make sense? Do you have a better mousetrap? Where do you think

Konrad W. von Finckenstein

Industry committee  First of all, there has been no overturn here. Let me explain to you how it works. If we make a decision and you as a party are dissatisfied with the decision, you appeal to the minister, who then asks for submissions from other parties and then takes this decision to the cabine

Industry committee  The telecom act speaks in terms of broad principles and objectives. It leaves it up to the CRTC to put those into reality and make them work. It also gives the government--to give us direction or guidance. This is what they used. They said they wanted us to interpret these broad

Konrad W. von Finckenstein

Industry committee  First of all, I did not agree with the government. We did it on our own. It was absolutely clear; it was our decision to do this. Second, I cannot tell you what the outcome of the review is, but as I've said many times, I believe the ISPs are vital to having a competitive marke

Industry committee  TekSavvy and some of its colleagues appeared before the commission about two weeks ago and made representations on our latest ruling. They said basically they liked the ruling, but they thought we went too far, and rather than averaging, we would make them impose it on individual

Konrad W. von Finckenstein

Industry committee  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 ful

Industry committee  You should ask him the question. I am not speaking on behalf of the minister.

February 3rd, 2011Committee meeting

Konrad W. von Finckenstein

Industry committee  No. The large corporations do send submissions to us but we are the ones who decide. We have taken many decisions that the large corporations do not like at all. For example, we insisted that the big suppliers provide their services to small providers at the same speed they provi

Industry committee  We don't set caps. We don't set any caps whatsoever. The wholesalers picked this cap for themselves. Those are the caps they apply to their own users.

February 3rd, 2011Committee meeting

Konrad W. von Finckenstein

Industry committee  We say you have to treat your wholesale customers like you treat yourselves. That's the basic principle. They impose a cap on their users. If you are a Bell customer user, you are subject to a cap right now. We said that if you resell, don't make it any harsher; it has to be equi
