+ - Canadian regulator orders Internet telecoms to tell us what it costs->

Submitted by
bshell writes "Canada's CRTC (like the FCC) has finally asked the telecoms to provide information about how much their services actually cost. In this Montreal Gazette Story the writer says, In a report I wrote last year, I estimated the markup for Internet services was 6,452 per cent for Bell’s Essential Plus plan, which provides a two-megabits-per-second speed for $28.95 (prices may have changed since last year)."
The markup is likely similar in the US. It's about time that we consumers found out what it really costs to provide Internet, and for that matter telephone and wireless services, so we can get a fair shake."
