Subject: We need your help -- CRTC Ruling would challenge telecom competition
(Une version française de ce couriel sera envoyé plus tard
We need your help -- we need you to lend us your voice and state
your opinion on a recent CRTC decision that could allow the
incumbent phone companies (such as Bell and Telus) to
discontinue offering services (Internet and phone) to wholesale
providers which in effect would eliminate competition in Canada.
With no competition to help fuel the market; Internet innovation
could come to stand still and prices for broadband access could
skyrocket out of control. The incumbents would also be free to
do with the lines as they please. This would open up future
privacy invading Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) technologies and
direct marketing/advertising based on *you* and *your families*
internet activities and habits.
They could also use this same technology to turn the Internet
into a pay-per-website service the same way that TV is a
pay-per-channel service. Can you imagine a world where you have
to pay to use the Google website to search for information?
Then, if you find what you are looking for you may be restricted
to the content because your ISP doesn't have a "peering"
agreement with said company.
Please help us stop this major potential catastrophe.
