Hello,

I was interested today to see that you are seeking input regarding how well or how poorly Canada's telecom system stands up to what's available in the rest of the world. Frankly, I can't imagine it does. I live in Brockville, Ontario. I am 5 minutes from a city of 25,000 and yet I remain without high speed internet and cell service. Bell Canada has collected millions and millions of dollars for years to be used for rural broadband access, yet I can't receive it. I am not able to use a cell phone here but can, oddly, use a cellular based modem and, frankly, must do so to get any internet. It costs me $200/monthly (approx) for internet alone and that's provided I don't make use of too many services like streaming television. My question is: when will the CRTC force telecommunications companies to make high speed internet available for ALL Canadians and not just those who live in Toronto and Montreal? I pay far more money for services than people in those cities pay and my service is deplorable. Certainly not world class at all.
