Q: What telecommunications services do Canadians consider necessary to participate in the digital economy?A: Mobile phone with data connection; internet.Q: Which services do Canadians rely on the most to communicate?A: Mobile phone with data connection; internet.Q: Should the prices for telecommunications services in Canada be similar between urban and non-urban areas?A: I don't think the prices have to be the same, just more reasonable than they are now. Take a look at Australia as an example of a country with a pretty spread out population but relatively low (compared to Canada) mobile phone and internet costs.Q: What upload and download speeds for broadband Internet service would meet Canadians’ needs?A: I am fine with 20mbps down / 2 mbps up, but I think it is important to have a variety of speeds available for people with differing needs.
