Calling all singletons! Are you looking for love this St. Patrick’s Day? Why not try online dating?
On February 13th, 2014, I attended the TEDx event in Chatham-Kent. Already a huge fan of the critically acclaimed TED talks, this smaller version, entitled “Small Towns, and Big Ideas” did not disappoint. Although the presenters were as diverse as night and day and ranged from software product marketers and IT specialists to Broadway performers and stand-up comedians, there was one common thread; they all credit the Internet as the catalyst that moved them from ordinary to extraordinary. By harnessing the power of digital technology, they were able to capitalize on small Ideas in very big ways.
The Internet is a complex and funny thing. We all use it every day, but do we really understand what we’re paying for? It’s safe to say that over the years, and through the many different packages that I’ve had, I’ve never been fully confident that the package I was paying for was the right one for me. So generally, I’ve just taken my sales rep’s word for it.

Recently we sent out a communication to our customers with the intent to help them understand the Copyright Modernization Act and TekSavvy’s position on how we view our responsibility to our customers and our legal duties under both copyright and privacy laws. We received a tremendous response to that communication. Many have expressed questions and concerns about it.
When I was asked to give a talk about the evolution of access at the ISP Summit in Toronto, it got me thinking about how it’s impossible to separate that evolution from the ups and downs we’ve experienced at TekSavvy. The reality is that without proper access to incumbent networks, ISPs like ours can’t survive. And our survival is critical if we want to ensure a competitive market that benefits consumers.
This past couple of weeks has been a good one for consumers. First the Bell Astral decision, then seeking consumer feedback on wireless and now the most recent decision (Telecom Notice of Consultation CRTC 2012-168) on transparency in rate setting by the CRTC.
