Canadian ISPs Cogeco Connexion, Maskicom and Videotron have issued a joint statement saying they do not believe the measures Bell announced earlier to simplify access to its poles will solve the issue of Bell's anti-competitive and unfair practices regarding access to its physical infrastructure. Bell said the new process will let licensees ramp up the deployment of their broadband networks in Quebec but Cogeco said that none of them will actually speed up any rollout of high-speed internet outside major urban centres.
