MORE_Good News, and Money in Your Pocket
Great news! Today, we are very excited to announce that we will be reducing the rates of many of our residential Internet packages, giving you, our neighbours, considerable savings. This is a very rare occurrence in our industry, as infrastructure, hardware costs and bandwidth costs only ever seem to rise. To be able to offer our customers a lower rate is truly a special kind of joy for us.
Why Are Rates Dropping?
The reason for these price decreases is due in part to a ruling by the CRTC (Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission) in October of last year, which stated that the large incumbent providers were charging third-party ISPs (like us) too much to access what is called the “last mile” of their networks, from the street to the home. This ruling has made interim corrections to the prices the large incumbents are allowed to charge us for last-mile access.
In turn, this has allowed us to lower many of our rates and give back to our customers. When we win, you win.
How Can I Find Out About My New Rate?
We will be sending e-mails to affected customers notifying them of their new lower rate. In the meantime, you can also find the new rates on the website upon entering your postal code.
Again, we are delighted to be able to do this for our customers and thank them for their loyalty and support over the years.
