I think that basic broadband should be considered an essential service for all Canadians, just as a telephone line is considered. I have a normal telephone line but the quality of the lines and equipment connecting to the central office are so old that I cannot use any type of DSL service. This severely limits the amount of options I have for accessing the Internet and means that I am forced to pay a lot for wireless LTE service. I think that Bell should be forced to upgrade their telephone lines at least to the point that basic DSL service is an option for all Canadians.
