Canada's established telecom carriers must allow smaller Internet providers access to their high-speed fiber networks at the same speed they offer to their own customers, Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) -- Canada's telecom and broadcast regulator -- ruled on August 30, but it said they can charge a 10 percent mark-up for doing so. CRTC said cable companies, which have provided "speed-matching" for third-party providers since 2006, must make it easier for secondary Internet service providers to access their networks.
