The Technology, Media and Telecommunications Review, 5th Edition
|Lawyer||Richard Corley, Michael Koch, Monique McAlister|
This chapter is a review of technology, media and telecommunications regulation in Canada. Policymakers and regulators have sought to address challenges relating to the
increasingly important role of mobile telecommunications, the growth of the internet as a telecommunications and content-delivery network, and related social issues, including with respect to network security, personal privacy and security, consumer protection, and competition concerns. The convergence of the telecommunications and broadcasting services offered by the incumbent wireline and cable operators and the structure of the mobile industry have prompted initiatives to encourage the entry of additional facilities based competitors, as well as changes intended to protect consumers from unexpected mobile charges, spam and other concerns.
