Broadband Market Study

The Competition Bureau is conducting a market study on the broadband sector in Canada. The study is looking into consumer habits in purchasing internet services, with the goal of better understanding the competitive dynamics in that sector. It also seeks to identify positive steps that regulators or policymakers could take to further support competition among broadband providers.

Through the study, the Bureau is examining four broad themes: the ability of broadband providers to deploy competitive service offers, consumer reactions to new competitive alternatives, the impact of existing regulation on broadband providers, and whether there are lessons to be learned from how other countries manage and regulate broadband competition.

Could changes to internet regulations result in a broader range of service options, encourage more informed consumer choice, or reduce barriers to consumer switching between providers? We are looking for answers.
