The FMCC has submitted our comments to Telecom Notice of Consultation CRTC 2019-406: Call for comments regarding potential barriers to the
deployment of broadband-capable networks in underserved areas in Canada.
Our submission details the barriers that FMCC member organizations face with respect to the deployment of broadband in the communities they serve. These barriers include but are not limited to, access to required transport services and efficient access to support structures. We also note challenges related to spectrum and satellites, which, although primarily under the jurisdiction of ISED, play an essential role in providing transport infrastructure in these regions.
