Why Abandoning Net Neutrality in the U.S. Matters in Canada

Earlier this week I appeared on CBC’s On the Money to discuss the U.S. decision to abandon net neutrality and its implications for Canada. I’ve written about these issues in columns and posts, but this interview provided the opportunity to highlight the implications for Canadian business and consumers, the prospect of including net neutrality in future Telecommunications Act reforms, the connection to NAFTA, and the ongoing concerns with telecom competitiveness in Canada. The interview is embedded below.

    Well Done! Good interview.

  2. Michael,

    How will repealing Net Neutrality affect Canadian users who want to access content that originates in the US? Will Canadian ISP’s be forced to pay more than they already do to access the American part of the Internet?
    For example, if YouTube is hosted on the Verizon network but my Canadian ISP connects to the US part of the Internet via AT&T, could my access to YouTube be degraded or even blocked unless my ISP pays through the nose?

  3. Great clarity. Loved it.
