Why Read This Report

If TELUS and Bell Canada had merged, Canadian enterprises and SMBs would have seen competitive choices for telecom services shrink dramatically. As new IP services mature during the next three years and demand ramps up, business telecom services buyers should solicit proposals from MTS Allstream, Rogers Telecom, and regional or local providers of business-grade DSL, cable, and Ethernet access and site-to-site connectivity, such as Toronto Hydro Telecom, Shaw, Vidéotron, and Primus, among others. Canadian business users should encourage competition by offering financial incentives to the smaller as well as the largest service providers to help them justify the needed big investments in wireless and wireline innovation technologies to develop and deploy next-generation networks and services.
