Firstly, The U.S has over 13 Internet service providers that are standalone and don't fall under a provider (I.e Telus)[1]. This gives a wide variety of choices for what type of person you are, how much Internet you need, and the cost of the Internet. In Canada, the choices are limited to two major Internet providers (Bell and Rogers) that will, in the foreseeable future, never be challenged without a third provider. This to is due to the bandwidth limitations for the other companies that provide Internet in the whole region of Canada, including the 3 territories. Even promoting a smaller company to major Internet status would increase competition between the providers and as it comes with business the prices would lower if they wanted a chance. This has been seen just between the two companies now, with Rogers Ignite[2] and Bell Fibe[3] being responses to fast internet. Canada needs this, because their internet is the 9th most expensive in the world for high and low bandwidth. My opponent, it is your turn to debate.
