Interventions Phase 2: Intervenor 411

I live in rural NS where the number of internet providers is limited and the technical quality of the services are poor to say the least. The services are overpriced and with the new UBB cap that has been initiated are quickly becoming not worth the money. I think it's the governments responsibility to set the standards required and the providers responsibility to meet or exceed those standards. I think in my location it would be more advantageous to me to draw my service from the United States via sub sea cable than to waste my money with the current technology suppliers. I use a residential service. I don't know how local businesses can operate with sub par internet services. I guess that explains why they don't bother having web pages and online shopping.
