Canada's national telecommunications regulator, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC), has announced that it will allow independent competitors to sell internet services over large telephone companies' Fibre Networks in Ontario and Quebec. This decision comes as part of an ongoing review of third-party access to fibre networks in order to increase competition and lower prices for customers. The CRTC's review found a significant decline in competition in Ontario and Quebec, leading to this move to stabilize the market and enhance consumer rights. The regulator will also set interim rates for smaller competitors to access fibre networks.
