TORONTO — Impartial telecom supplier TekSavvy Options Inc. has shelved plans for extra wi-fi companies and will exit some web markets on account of Thursday’s CRTC choice on wholesale web charges.
TekSavvy’s spokesman, Andy Kaplan-Myrth, says it’s too quickly to foretell whether or not it is going to elevate its costs due to the choice.
The Chatham, Ont.-based firm had anticipated to get some a reimbursement from what it has paid since 2016 to hire bandwidth on the networks of bigger cable and cellphone firms, a fee the CRTC beforehand dominated was too excessive.
Nonetheless, the CRTC on Thursday scrapped a set of wholesale fee cuts it ordered in 2019, leaving intact many of the greater charges in impact since 2016.
TekSavvy says it not has the monetary assets to take part in a wi-fi spectrum public sale that begins in June.
Kaplan-Myrth says TekSavvy needed to make use of a few of the rebated cash to purchase spectrum that will ultimately enable it to supply cell phones service to its clients.
