I have family that live outside of currently serviced zones, but VERY close to serviced , urban centers, who don't have access to affordable internet, which is ridiculous in today's age and considering the current Covid reality.

I live in extremely rural Kansas and the only internet available is satellite and it does not work well at all.

The lack of highspeed internet is a significant obstacle to a work from home option.

The mention of "affordable" internet peaked my interest. I feel that internet service should be an essential service. It bothers me that the two big companies, Bell and Rogers do not have healthy competition and they can go ahead and take advantage of their customers.

I'm signing because I have only limited internet data -- I don't even have an option of purchasing more -- and overages are prohibitively expensive and unjust!

The digital era has arrived! Internet is as critical to us as home telephone lines were to our grandparents!
