FCC Chairman promotes hands-off regulation at Canadian Telecom Summit


  • Dexter

    How about keep your regressive policies and net-nutraility stance in The States. Canadians like their net nutrality.

    • It’s Me

      Yup. I’d prefer to keep all the US crap in the US. They voted for Trump, the deserve him and his cronies, but we don’t need their crap up here.

      Imagine Rob Ford had has a chance to run federally. The bright bulbs would have had a chance to screw Canada over too.

    Guy with “most punchable face in IT Governance” tells us how to do our job and then shouts out his buddy who got fired and is dealing with legal troubles.

    Somebody page Wayne, we need a ‘getta load of this guy’ cam.

    I’d rather stuff vomit in my ears than hear Ajit Pai spew more pro-telecom bull. The only thing telecoms have ever innovated is new ways to gouge their customers. They need to be heavily regulated.

  • I can’t think of any new tech that would be held back by the existence of net neutrality. I can think of a lot of stuff that the carriers could have completely killed off (youtube, netflix, spotify). What innovative tech/software is depending on the absence of net neutrality?

  • Jason

    This REALLY gets under my skin when he trying to persuade us after over 80% of the USA wants net neutrality. We just made the internet a basic right, there’s no going back from that.

    Yes let’s listen to what the former Verizon lobbyist and proven corporatist has to say. Sounds like a great idea.

    • Anthony Harris

      To be fair, I thought the same thing about Tom wheeler, and he turned out to be surprisingly reasonable.
      Not Pai though. He is drinking the green Telecom kool-aid for sure.

      I just hope the Canadian government asks him politely, yet firmly to leave, and never bring his greedy corporate ideals back to this country. Our ISPs get away with enough as it is.

  • Andrew Holt

    Screw regulation, it’s time the government appropriates and takes over all ownership of all the telecom infrastructure in Canada and provides it’s resources to Canadians directly and declare internet an essential service. At the very least, we need to separate content creators from content delivery. Rogers should only be allowed to broadcast or distribute, not both.

    It’s less he’s for “hands off” regulation, and more for “their hands in your wallet” regulation.

    Sorta like now, but even more so.
