Regarding internet service, we have had basic minimum internet connectivity for about 5 years. This was accomplished by installing fibre cable along the main highway but leaving "the last mile" to our house using the old telephone wires. This limits me to 5mb download speed. While this may meet your "minimum speed" definition I want higher speeds. That speed may be fine for 1 person in our house but when my wife and kids start using the internet it is unacceptable.Regarding basic landline telephone service, I have only 1 supplier Bell Canada. Of the multiple telephone providers I hear about (including IP based and cable companies), none can provide me with a local phone number. I just want some choice.
