Big bad Mother Bell is still so greedy

Big win for small Internet providers Vancouver Sun  The country’s major Internet providers, such as BCE Inc.’s Bell Canada and Telus Corp., will be forced to lease network space to smaller competitors at matching speeds to ensure competition for broadband services, the telecommunications regulator said in a key ruling Monday. The decision, delivered after hearings last spring, is a critical if only partial victory for independent resellers like TekSavvy Solutions Inc. and Telnet Communications, which will now be able to keep pace with incumbent offerings. Yet for Telus and Bell, it is a big blow in their fight to gain television share and slow phone line losses against rival cable companies Shaw Communications Inc. and Rogers Communications Inc. Limited bandwidth capacity the pair would rather use for new Internet TV products must now instead go toward wholesale services under regulated prices and fixed returns. In the decision, Konrad von Fickenstein, chairman of the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission, acknowledged that big providers are investing in network infrastructure, but regulated access was still required to foster “more competition and (to better serve consumers).” Third-party resellers’ business model depends on set prices for wholesale network access, which is then resold to customers.
