I do support unlimited internet access for the north. The cost of the monthly rates and options provided are not suitable. The average cost for similar internet access in most parts of the country outside of the north are provided at a rate of 3 to 5 times less. Since this has been deemed an essential service, to which they have also received significant public funds to support their endeavors, I submit the rates should be made to be similar to those down south. I also believe, since the bulk of the recent funds provided by the public purse in the area of $65,000,000 is mostly going to projects in the Yukon and demonstrate the capacity and capabilities of offering the service in the NWT and Nunavut without those funds. I would also remind the CRTC that NWTel was able to offer unlimited service to all subscribers fornthe first 6 months of the pandemic without significant impact in service or revenue change to the organization.

It is time for the CRTC to properly support the north and ensure essential services are provided to northerners that are comparable in cost and quality to the south.

Here is your opportunity to do so.
