CRTC asks Canadians to submit opinions regarding Internet Service

Recently, the CRTC has started doing reviews on telecommunication services and Internet services around Canada. During the first phase in April 2015, the CRTC collected information from different areas in Canada to see who was getting served right and who wasn’t, along with a better understanding of the situation.

Now, CRTC is inviting Canadians from all over to participate in a survey regarding Internet Connection. It is providing multiple ways for Canadians to get their opinions across as well. The CRTC is using Internet as well as traditional methods. They are asking Canadians what telecommunication services are considered necessary for today, what services they most rely on, if prices should be the same or different in urban and non-urban locations, and what the optimal upload and download speeds would be. Canadians will be able to submit their opinions until February 8, 2016 and also get an opportunity to attend a public hearing happening this year in April.

Those who wish to appear at said hearing can request so by filling out an online form here or writing a letter to the CRTC. The CRTC has also created a survey that Canadians can fill out or alternatively call 1-877-249-2782 for a phone survey or request a form to fill out their personal opinions on telecommunications. All responses will be accepted until February 29, 2016.

The CRTC will also be managing focus groups all around the country where the population isn’t completely serviced by telecommunications.
