SaskTel is putting up a fuss over the fact that both the CRTC and now the CCTA are on the same page. Both organizations have stated that few or no regs for new era VoIP service providers and more regs for established telecommunications companies is the right way to go.
In the near term, I think this will be good for the consumer. The established Telco's have been in the biz forever and dominate telephony today. Less regs for a smaller voip-centric provider will encourage more competition in the marketplace and potentially spur innovation. Longer term it may have the opposite effect as the ILECS of old lose ground. We need to remember that end-to-end IP is not here yet and we need to rely on POTS for while yet. I can see service interruptions, strikes, and more as the incumbents look to become more competitive.
