Canadians Are Paying Too Much For Internet Services – And Telecom Regulators Want To Change That

Canadians are paying exceptionally high prices for internet services— the highest among international counterparts, to be exact. Vicky Eatrides, the new chair of Canada’s telecom regulator, is looking to change that, promising price relief for the country’s wholesale internet market sooner than later.

In an interview with the Toronto Star, Eatrides said she plans to focus on competition and pricing within the internet sector during her five-year tenure at the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission, which began in January. “What I would say is ‘stay tuned.’” Currently, the CRTC requires large telecommunications companies like Rogers and Bell to sell access to their networks to smaller players at regulated rates, which then provide services to retail customers.

However, recent CRTC rulings have favored large operators and as a result, independent internet providers are struggling to remain in business, with some being acquired by companies like Bell and Quebecor. This has caused diminished competition, and ultimately, substantially higher prices. Eatrides plans to revisit the current model of high-speed internet access as it has not had the desired positive impact. She plans to release a new solution in the coming months, rather than years.

“We have seen that the high-speed access framework is not having the positive intended effect that we want it to have,” Eatrides explained. “Internet prices— and wireless, quite frankly, even though wireless may be coming down a bit— we’re kind of in the top three in terms of highest prices in the world,” she added, pointing to data compiled by Wall Communications Inc., which shows Canadian internet prices surpassed other G7 countries in nearly all speed categories in 2021.

The CRTC has implemented new rules that require large cellular carriers to sell network access to certain smaller telecoms. Eatrides plans to ensure that these rules are being followed and will also consider balancing the need for affordable pricing with policies that encourage companies to invest in building networks. “I want people to be able to say, ‘What has the CRTC done for me?’ And then have good answers to that, whether that’s lower prices or more choice and (network) resilience and more access to Canadian content,” she said.

Canada’s telecommunications sector has been at the forefront of controversy over the past year, thanks to Rogers’ high-profile $26 billion takeover of Shaw. Just last week, internet service provider TekSavvy filed a complaint with the CRTC alleging Rogers’ agreement to offer Quebecor Inc discounted rates in exchange for leasing its broadband network violates the Telecommunications Act. “Aside from that (the TekSavvy application), we’re watching very closely, obviously,” Eatrides commented.

Chiney K Pop Girl Named “Best Jamaican Radio or Online Personality” for 2022

The 2022 Best of Jamaica results show, the annual event organized by Jamaicans.com, awarded the title of “Best Jamaican Radio/Online Personality” for 2022 to Chiney K Pop Girl. She was chosen via a survey conducted by Jamaicans.com, the leading media platform for Jamaican and Caribbean news, travel, food, and culture. Her win was announced on the 2022 Best of Jamaica Awards Show hosted by Jody Ann Gray and Xavier Murphy.

Chiney K Pop Girl is the professional name of Kerry Ann Collings, who was born in Kingston and attended Wolmer’s Girls’ School until she was 15 years of age. Chiney K Pop Girl was born with a creative urge, and she cites her years at Wolmer’s High School as inspiring her love for the arts. She moved to New Jersey to complete her secondary education and graduated from William Patterson University with a degree in Media Studies. After enjoying some success on the radio, she enrolled at California State University, Northridge, in 2015, and focused her interests on cinematography and film production.

While she always wanted a career in the entertainment industry, the application process frustrated her, but the experience of rejection in the transition from academics to the professional world inspired her to buy a camera and document her daily activity. In essence, and so she created her own space in which to display her interests, a move that resulted in her first web series, “On My Mind,” which was an instant hit on YouTube. During the COVID-19 lockdown, the media personality’s production efforts slowed, but she used the time to create content on Instagram and TikTok, ultimately gaining over 300,000 followers who watched her comedy skits and vlogs.

Jamaican-Born Social Media Influencer Chiney K

In 2017, she reinvented herself and become Chiney K Pop Girl and turned her attention completely to social media, helping Caribbean brands and local celebrities improve their sales and visibility. She credits Alan Mruvka, the American entrepreneur and co-founder of Movietime, as her mentor who taught her about the entertainment industry.

She is also a successful entrepreneur with her own line of organic, natural beauty products. She started Joli Faire Organics in 2018 after taking a trip to India where she intended to launch the “On My Mind” series. However, she became interested in the natural hair care products used by locals in Mumbai. She is now the head of Joli Faire Beauty and the Joli Faire Media Group, as well as Joli Faire Hair. She lives in New Jersey and co-hosts “Fire It Up” on Fyah 105.

She would like to be an inspiration to young people and encourage them to pursue their dreams, regardless of whether they follow traditional paths to their goals or not.

Ukrainian army radio signal expands to cover Bakhmut, Soledar, Chasiv Yar, Toretsk

Ukrainian army radio signal now covers the towns of Bakhmut, Soledar, Chasiv Yar and Toretsk,

the State Service of Special Communications and Information Protection of Ukraine has said.

“The RRT Concern, which is managed by the State Special Communications Service, installed an additional 2 kW transmitter in Donetsk Region on the initiative of the Donetsk regional administration,” the State Special Communications Service said.

To access the broadcast, you need to tune the FM transmitter to 102.4 MHz.

Earlier, communication and the Internet were restored in some settlements of Chernihiv, Odesa and Donetsk regions.

The head of the Luhansk regional military administration, Serhiy Hayday, said that the Russians were actively jamming mobile communications and the Internet in occupied territories so that people could not transmit information to the Ukrainian side and in order to deceive the population about “victories” at the front.

Stolen wind generator hurts amateur radio project

Scott Hayes | reporter@fitzhugh.ca
Local Journalism Initiative Reporter

The recent theft of an alternative energy source dampened the festive spirits of the Yellowhead Amateur Radio Association over the holidays.

Regardless, the organization’s members are trying to keep the momentum going on a major project that it affected.

The association’s wind generator was stolen sometime over the Christmas weekend, as reported in a letter to the editor that was published in the Hinton Voice on Jan. 12. The unit was mounted on a pickup truck that was used for the Knights of Columbus’s float in the Hinton Snowflake Parade on Dec. 9.

“It was to be used to supply green energy for the internet system for the Mountain Cree ‘Smallboy Camp’ which the KofC had taken on as a project to build. This was essentially the last nail in the coffin for this project,” wrote Eric Rosendahl, the Yellowhead Amateur Radio Association’s secretary-treasurer, as published in the letter.

“Furthermore, had our efforts to develop this green energy system proven successful, it was our intention to start up a local cottage industry, to supply these systems, and to employ local workers, not the least being residents from the Small Boy Camp.”

Despite the setback, the association is forging onward. President Ron Rosmer confirmed that he has ordered a new wind generator.

The idea was originally to replace solar panels at the radio towers that it operates through Edson, Jasper and Grande Cache areas. The problem with those power sources is especially evident during the northern winters.

“Solar, of course, is good. It works whenever you’ve got the sun out. But for some of our sites, of course, it’s only giving you the power during the day. We’re looking at alternative methods of power generation and, and wind would be certainly an acceptable alternative,” Rosmer said.

“So, we’ve been experimenting with these wind generators to see what’s the amount of power we can get out of them. That was the reason for putting this wind generator on the roof of my truck. That way, I can accurately measure the voltage output, or the power output, at different speeds.”

Right now, the association has only one of its sites that is jointly supplied with power from solar and wind generation. One of its sites is a former microwave tower at Valemount, B.C., which, at 2,600 metres, would certainly be exposed to a wealth of wind for any generator that could be stationed there.

Rosmer said that the whole project is a work in progress with many technical facets to it. Part of it is to help establish high speed internet at the Smallboy Camp near Rocky Mountain House.

Through his communications company, he had installed a number of satellites for its residents. This led him to have a greater awareness of the need for internet service in the community.

It’s not just about communications, he said. It’s about improving the lives of a town of people who could really benefit from the assistance.

“There’s real problems with their whole infrastructure down there. Whereas some of the people have been running off of the generator that the school has, it’s not a very reliable or safe system for powering. My thought would be to also get them set up with green energy. This is where we could be looking at a combination of solar and wind,” he said, suggesting that solar would likely be more viable in the valley location where wind isn’t reliable.

Other alternative green energy models, including fuel cells, are being considered, but Rosmer said support for the project is lacking.

Chiney K Pop Girl Named “Best Jamaican Radio or Online Personality” for 2022

The 2022 Best of Jamaica results show, the annual event organized by Jamaicans.com, awarded the title of “Best Jamaican Radio/Online Personality” for 2022 to Chiney K Pop Girl. She was chosen via a survey conducted by Jamaicans.com, the leading media platform for Jamaican and Caribbean news, travel, food, and culture. Her win was announced on the 2022 Best of Jamaica Awards Show hosted by Jody Ann Gray and Xavier Murphy.

Chiney K Pop Girl is the professional name of Kerry Ann Collings, who was born in Kingston and attended Wolmer’s Girls’ School until she was 15 years of age. Chiney K Pop Girl was born with a creative urge, and she cites her years at Wolmer’s High School as inspiring her love for the arts. She moved to New Jersey to complete her secondary education and graduated from William Patterson University with a degree in Media Studies. After enjoying some success on the radio, she enrolled at California State University, Northridge, in 2015, and focused her interests on cinematography and film production.

While she always wanted a career in the entertainment industry, the application process frustrated her, but the experience of rejection in the transition from academics to the professional world inspired her to buy a camera and document her daily activity. In essence, and so she created her own space in which to display her interests, a move that resulted in her first web series, “On My Mind,” which was an instant hit on YouTube. During the COVID-19 lockdown, the media personality’s production efforts slowed, but she used the time to create content on Instagram and TikTok, ultimately gaining over 300,000 followers who watched her comedy skits and vlogs.

Jamaican-Born Social Media Influencer Chiney K

In 2017, she reinvented herself and become Chiney K Pop Girl and turned her attention completely to social media, helping Caribbean brands and local celebrities improve their sales and visibility. She credits Alan Mruvka, the American entrepreneur and co-founder of Movietime, as her mentor who taught her about the entertainment industry.

She is also a successful entrepreneur with her own line of organic, natural beauty products. She started Joli Faire Organics in 2018 after taking a trip to India where she intended to launch the “On My Mind” series. However, she became interested in the natural hair care products used by locals in Mumbai. She is now the head of Joli Faire Beauty and the Joli Faire Media Group, as well as Joli Faire Hair. She lives in New Jersey and co-hosts “Fire It Up” on Fyah 105.

She would like to be an inspiration to young people and encourage them to pursue their dreams, regardless of whether they follow traditional paths to their goals or not.
