The Law Bytes Podcast, Episode 186: Andy Kaplan-Myrth on the CRTC’s Last Ditch Attempt to Fix Canada’s Internet Competition Problem

For many years, Canadians have lamented the state of competition for Internet broadband services, pointing to concerns regarding price and lack of choice. Earlier this month, the CRTC seemed to agree, admitting in a decision involving competitive access that it is “important that the Commission revise its approach to promote competition and protect the interests of Canadians.” Andy Kaplan-Myrth is Vice-President, Regulatory and Carrier Affairs at TekSavvy, one of the few remaining independent competitors in Canada. He joins the Law Bytes podcast to discuss the current state of competition, the recent CRTC decision, and what this might mean for the Canadian market.

  1. The CRTC will fix the competition problem by having Bell acquire Rogers.

  2. Finally, it’s good to see the CRTC acknowledging the need for change in promoting competition and protecting the interests of Canadians in the Internet broadband services. Looking forward to hearing more about the insights from Andy Kaplan-Myrth on the Law Bytes podcast.
