Canada has some of the most expensive internet prices in the world

Tired of all the big telecom shit, oxio (Canada more transparent ISP) is finally helping Canadians understand why their Internet costs what it does.

MONTREAL, May 31, 2022 /CNW Telbec/ – Internet in Canada isn’t exactly known for its transparency. Or their fair prices. Or your healthy competition. And it doesn’t look like it’s going to get much better any time soon. In May 26, 2022 the government denied three requests Asking you to overturn the controversial decision by the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) that raised wholesale Internet prices for independent Internet Service Providers (ISPs).

In LaPresse in May 28, 2022 Marc-Andre CampagnaCEO and co-founder of Oxiotalked about the government’s call for innovation (the only good thing to come out of the May 26 announcement) explaining that oxio relies on a cloud-based operating system and full transparency to drive prices down: “We are an innovative player in the industry, we are probably the only independent that is growing right now […] We have a flexibility that others don’t have.”

The opacity and lack of competition in the Canadian telecommunications market has already forced one of the country’s largest independent ISPs to sell to Bell. So how can little ones help lower Internet prices if the CRTC and the The government is still on the side of the big telecommunications companies? Education.

oxio has decided to share why their internet costs what it does. Their price drop it shows you how they spend every dollar you give them. This is not necessarily a revolutionary move, but it is unheard of in the telecommunications industry.

“Breaking down our prices is our way of educating people about how the Internet business works. We want people to know and understand where their money is going and why the Internet costs so, so, so, so much. The shady world of Las Telecommunications have always kept us in the dark. We’ve decided to do something about it.” Marc-Andre says.

The tolerance of the CRTC and the government of Canada The oligopoly of the telcos, not to mention their sea change in wholesale prices and policy, will not make the Internet more affordable any time soon. That’s where companies like oxio come in: innovate to keep prices low and ensure healthy competition.
