Forced access to telecommunications networks

Economic Note on the impact of forcing telephone companies to share access to their infrastructure

Forced access to telecommunications networks

The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) has ordered telephone companies to sell to third-party retailers services matching the speed of their own retail Internet services on their next generation networks (NGNs). No one believes that grocery chains should be forced to share their distribution networks with smaller competitors, or that Amazon.com should be forced to make its on-line distribution system available to small bookstores. However, many believe that the government should force telephone companies to allow third-party suppliers access to their facilities.
