Telus Settles Automated Calling Dispute with $200,000 Donation


28/10/2010

Expanding high-speed internet services to all of Canada’s remote and rural regions would cost approximately $7-billion over 10 years and is currently impractical, according to a number of telecom providers testifying at a CRTC hearing this week.

Such a move to completely “bridge the digital divide” in Canada cannot be achieved by market forces alone, and if mandated by government, “the cost will be borne by consumers and businesses,” according to Kelvin Shepherd, the president of Winnipeg-based telecom carrier, MTS AllStream.

Telus Corp.’s senior vice president for regulatory and government affairs, Michael Hennessy, confirmed MTS AllStream’s estimates, noting that the cost of extending broadband infrastructure to every home in the country is simply too high. Instead, he predicted that new technologies such as wireless broadband would ultimately have to close the gap.
