What telecommunications services do Canadians consider necessary to participate in the digital economy?The internet and cellular services, television and radio to a certain extent.Which services do Canadians rely on the most to communicate?I rely heavily on a home internet connection, as well as cellular networks to connect and communicate with others. They are vital to seemingly all aspects of daily life.Should the prices for telecommunications services in Canada be similar between urban and non-urban areas?Similar, but not necessarily identical as I understand the differences in providing the service in different geographical regions. What upload and download speeds for broadband Internet service would meet Canadians’ needs?Gigabit PLEASEIf not, 40 mbps down and 30 mbps up. My 15 down 5 up connection is NOT cutting it.
