Canadian Internet News

Looks like Internet wholesalers will have to play on an even playing field with their resellers. Traditionally companies like Bell or Rogers have throttled or providers slower download speeds to their resellers to maintain an advantage but the jig is up. The CRTC has ruled that they must provide the same speed for the services they provide to their resellers. As well they will only be able to charge a maximum of 10% markup. This is big victory for smaller companies like Teksavvy and others who have been battling the bigger companies. Get ready for more competitive Internet pricing plans. Yahoo

In other Canadian Internet news Bell and Bell Aliant will be teaming up to monopolize the rural market. In Ontario they are planning on building a high speed network to offer faster Internet speeds to those outside of major metropolitan areas. The project is estimated to cost $170 million over 2 or 3 years. This is good news for rural areas and desperate farmers who have been stuck with dial up service. Enjoy the animal porn in glorious high speed! Yahoo

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
