The radio and Television Commission and Telecommunications of Canada believes that “it is vital and a basic service of telecommunications that all canadians have the right to receive”.

If in your day the UN determined that the internet access was a human right, now in Canada have declared the access to the broadband internet as a service basic for its citizens.

the Commission on Broadcasting and Telecommunications in Canada (CRTC), whose CEO and chairman Jean-Pierre Blais considered that “access to the internet service broadband is vital and a basic service of telecommunications that all canadians have the right to receive”. Blais says that, “whether in a small town in the north of Yukon, a rural area of eastern Quebec or in downtown Calgary, around the world need access to the fixed internet and high-quality mobile services”.

In this sense, “we are doing our part to bring broadband services to rural and remote communities. However, the availability of broadband internet is an issue that cannot be resolved by the CRTC alone”, has nuanced the manager, who claims that “all actors in the landscape of canadian communications” start also to put “your part to ensure that canadians have access to the services they need to participate in the digital economy”.

in Addition see the connectivity of high-quality as a vital necessity for its inhabitants and the economic future of the country, in Canada have been proposed to bet on download and upload speeds of 50 Mbps and 10 Mbps, respectively, in fixed broadband.

The north american country also defend the clarity in the contracts by the suppliers of services, the availability of online tools to facilitate data management and the delivery of mobile services that take into account people with some type of disability.
