Start.ca to Offer Even More Improved Internet Plans Following CRTC Decision
October 24, 2019
By the Start.ca Team
Great news! Even more of our internet plans will be seeing improvements, with prices going down and speeds going up. This won’t just benefit new customers; 14,000 existing customers will either see more money in their pockets or a free speed increase next month.
Why is this happening? Because it’s the right thing to do. We’re able to make these changes thanks in large part to a CRTC decision that was made in August to lower the rates that smaller internet providers have to pay to access network infrastructure in Canada. Historically, Canadians have paid very high rates for internet services, and the CRTC’s decision sets the groundwork for fairer internet prices across Canada.
“We think it’s a great start,” states Peter Rocca, President & CEO at Start.ca, “Which is why following the CRTC decision, we lowered rates and increased speeds on many of our internet packages. As planned, we took a closer look at how the decision affects us and we’ve recognized even more ways of giving back. When the current industry conditions become clearer, we are hopeful we will be able to make additional improvements. ”
If your plan is improving as part of this change, you will be receiving an email with the details and your lower rate will be reflected in your next bill and speed changes will take effect by the end of November. Better yet, these changes are all happening automatically so you can sit back, relax, and enjoy.
