Digital economy rise pushes Canadian regulator to react.
The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) on 3d of May announced that by the end of 2015 the all Canadians will have access to the broadband service of at least 5 megabits per second (Mbps) for downloads and 1 Mbps for uploads.
95% of Canadian households have access to Internet download speeds of at least 1.5 Mbps through telephone, cable or fixed-wireless networks. And more than 80% of population has access to download speeds of 5 Mbps. To help CRTC reach its vision, the advances of the technology in wireless internet and satellite launches will help rural and remote regions be connected at the higher speeds in this digital age.
