No data caps. Ever. Total reliance for basic services in the North and Arctic means data caps eliminate wholesale access to critical, essential services, like education, medical, financial, and social supports. Those supports cannot ever be metered in a responsible, civil society. Data caps eliminate access. Minimum, persistent speeds of no less than 1.5 MBps are necessary to maintain access. Online health services, pharmacy, banks, and even telecom apps fail at less than 1 MBps. This totally cuts off access. Online health or legal or social support consultations are increasingly done via video and without persistent access are foregone.
As a minimum standard all person living in the North should have persistent, affordable, 1.5 MBps service via cellphone or line. For health, safety, and services this should never be interrupted.
Data caps are discrimination.
