I want to see more and better internet access in rural Ontario. It seems the big companies that control the internet in Canada are not too keen to provide better and faster telephone and internet access in rural areas (for example Tyendinaga, ****, Ontario) because they do not think it's profitable. Many children and families live in these areas and need good, affordable and reliable telephone and internet access. You can provide incentives (and punitive measures) to compel these companies, Bell, Rogers, Etc, to start providing good and affordable telephone and internet access in rural areas. One company wanted to charge me close to $5,000.00 to bring a telephone line to my home in Tyendinaga, ****, Ontario. That is ridiculous! I hope you can do something about that!
