Major telecoms win temporary reprieve in fight over internet pricing

The Federal Court of Appeal stayed an August 15 decision by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) that required large telecoms to charge lower wholesale rates to smaller internet providers and pay them back for the higher prices they’ve charged since 2016. Two lawsuits are challenging the decision, one filed by Bell and the other by Rogers, Shaw, Cogeco, Quebecor and Bragg Communications. In his rulings in both lawsuits, Justice Yves de Montigny said the CRTC order “could result in a permanent market distortion which could be extremely difficult to remedy afterwards.” (The Logic)
