If TekSavvy et all want to bitch and whine, let them develop their own network. Oh wait, too expensive? TOO BAD!
Welcome to a free market economy.
I'm pretty certain when the Internet was first starting to gain popularity, the Canadian government funded a lot of the infrastructure development costs - i.e. Bell got taxpayer money. They are still getting grants, just like the oil companies keep getting 'grants'.
It is the users that have 'paid' for the network - Bell never gave anything away free to customers.
I'm still waiting for the 'free' market to actually 'compete' to bring down prices. I don't know of anyplace in Ontario where more than 1 cable company services an area, hence no competition. I'm still waiting for the oil companies to compete as well
I remember when I used to pay Bell for a service. Now, I just pay Bell. The smaller outfits provide better service at a better cost than Bell can do. Why?
