That image is idiotic. It may highlight a fact, but does nothing to prove that service providers are overcharging.
Comparisons to other countries are equally inaccurate due to factors such as climate and population density.
IMO: Service providers--such as the big three--take a substantial risk when they borrow billions to build national networks; they are accountable not only to customers, but also investors and other stakeholders who expect a return. Therefore it is their prerogative on how they monetize those networks.
If consumer habits change or new tech prematurely deprecates existing infrastructure, stakeholders could lose a lot.
On the bright side, because Canadian telecommunications remain lucrative to invest in, high ROIs ensure investments and loans will continue. As a result, we have more tech jobs and Canadians continue to enjoy the latest network technologies.
