Teksavvy to cut costs while climbing some web speeds, CRTC administering prompts.

Several thousands Canadians got a surprising letter from their internet service provider this week, guaranteeing to bring down their bills beginning one year from now, with no corresponding decrease in their service.

This week, Ontario-based ISP Teksavvy told its clients that they can expect lower month to month charges beginning in 2017, on account of a late CRTC administering.
In October, Telecom Order CRTC 2016-396 ruled that incumbent providers were charging outsider ISPs like Teksavvy a lot to get to the claimed “last mile” of their systems, from the road to home connections.

A prior 2010 decision had commanded that the enormous companies charge close to their own particular expenses in addition to a 10% increase, yet the October choice discovered they were charging much more than that, and requested them to quit doing as such, in any event on a between time premise.

“Competitors that provide retail Internet services to Canadians using wholesale high-speed services must have access to these services at just and reasonable prices,” CRTC chair Jean-Pierre Blais said at the time. “The fact that these large companies did not respect accepted costing principles and methodologies is very disturbing.”
Teksavvy echoed that sentiment in its own letter this week, giving the CRTC choice all the credit for its corporate choice to lower costs.

“Correcting wholesale network access rates to a fairer level lets us create more savings for our customers, get back to innovating on service and features, and — we hope — spur a more competitive telecom market in Canada,” Teksavvy said in its letter to customers. “We believe that that’s very positive for consumers.”
