CRTC chairman calls for new speed target for universal broadband
November 1, 2010 – 5:17pm — Karen Fournier
GATINEAU—Canada will “fall behind” if it doesn’t set a target for broadband speed, access and affordability, CRTC chairman Konrad von Finckenstein said Monday at the commission’s basic services hearing.
“Other nations are setting much loftier goals of 4 Mbps, 10 Mbps, 100 Mbps … I think it’s very key that we at least have a goal, and hopefully the competitive forces from the market will get us there,” he said.
