Canada's major telecom companies are planning to intensify lobbying against the new minority Liberal government as it moves to fulfill election pledges to cut cellphone costs by 25% with some executives warning government action could hamper expensive network rollouts. Canada's three telecommunications providers, BCE Inc's Bell unit, Rogers Communications Inc and Telus Corp, control around 90% of the market and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said during the campaign he could force providers to take action. The industry is particularly unhappy about the Liberals' pledge to allow more access for Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNO) - which lease wireless capacity at wholesale prices and resell it at reduced retail prices - saying they do not help build the expensive infrastructure needed to ensure service.

TORONTO — Canada's largest telecommunications companies formally asked the federal cabinet on Wednesday to overturn a regulatory decision that slashes what they can charge their smaller competitors for access to their high-speed fibre networks.BCE Inc.'s Bell Canada and a group of other carriers want the government to restore interim wholesale rates and order a further review by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission.They also want the government to overrule the CRTC's decision to make the new, lower wholesale rates retroactive to 2016 — a decision that would force them to repay hundreds of millions of dollars collected from wholesale customers.Those wholesale customers — labelled "resellers" by their detractors and "independent" service providers by their supporters — include TekSavvy, Distributel and VMedia, among others.The mid-sized and small internet service providers — which collectively serve about one million Canadian households —argue the lower wholesale rates are fair and will help reduce what retail customers pay for their internet.After years of review, the CRTC set final wholesale rates in August that are up to 43 per cent lower than the interim rates for monthly capacity, and up to 77 per cent lower for access rates.The big carriers countered that the CRTC's process was flawed and its wholesale rate decision will undermine confidence required to risk billions of dollars to build high-quality networks.Bell, which has already threatened to reduce its spending on expanded rural coverage because of the CRTC's decision, says in its petition that the rate reductions raises investor concerns to a new level at a critical time for the industry."In summary, carriers, industry commentators and the investment community agree that the (Aug. 15) order threatens much-needed investments in broadband infrastructure, with negative consequences for rural and more remote communities, for the timely and widespread deployment of 5G infrastructure, and for the transformation to a greener economy."A separate but similar petition filed later Wednesday by Rogers, Shaw, Videotron, Cogeco and the owner of Eastlink states, "The promotion of access to high-speed broadband services by all Canadians, the future of Canada’s wireline network infrastructure, and Canada’s place at the leading edge of the digital economy depend on achieving a more appropriate and effective regulatory regime that takes into account the need to foster all forms of competition as well as the importance of incentivizing investment."The big carriers' latest tactic — an approach to the prime minister and his cabinet through a petition to the "governor in council" — follows a hard-fought election that reduced the Liberals to a minority government.Although the Liberals campaigned on their record of working towards more affordable prices for telecommunications services — including wireless as well as internet — Trudeau's new cabinet will have to get support from at least one of the opposition parties to push through its future agenda. The Prime Minister's Office was not immediately available for comment Wednesday on the petitions.A spokesman for a group representing independent ISPs said in a statement that the large telecom companies are attempting "to slow the progress the CRTC has made for Canadians in terms of choice and lower prices."Matt Stein, who is chairman of the Canadian Network Operators Consortium and CEO of Distributel, said in an email that he thinks Bell and others have are making a "low-probability play" to prevent a decision they don't like."The government and the CRTC are doing the right things to promote more competition in this and other markets," Stein said in an email."They should stay the course notwithstanding this typical and unjustified reaction from the incumbents, who seek to limit choice and competition to the detriment of Canadians."A spokeswoman for the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission said it wouldn't have a comment Wednesday but noted that the carriers can also ask for changes through the CRTC's own review process.The commission advised the various parties on Tuesday that it has extended the deadline for requests to review and vary its decision to Dec. 13. It also noted that the matter is before the Federal Court of Appeal, which is another route for challenging the CRTC's decisions.

(Bloomberg Opinion) -- Netflix Inc. broke the cable-TV bundle. Now it’s time to put it back together again, and cable giants like Comcast Corp. look eager to help.It’s true that streaming has created more choices for consumers. You don’t necessarily need to subscribe to a $100-a-month cable package just to access kid-friendly Disney programs or re-runs of “The Big Bang Theory” (or pay extra for the ability to DVR the episodes you’ll miss). There are on-demand apps for both of those now — Disney+, which launched on Tuesday, and HBO Max, which becomes available in May. At the same time, one major consequence of the streaming wars is that they’ve caused a new kind of consumer frustration. It feels like everything is becoming segregated across various services with their own individual paywalls. That requires knowing which TV programs and movies reside where, having to toggle among those different apps — which isn’t as smooth as simply channel-surfing — and managing multiple monthly subscriptions. Sign up for enough of them, and it can easily add up to the cost of good old cable, especially given that a strong internet connection is a necessary component. It’s a situation that’s unsustainable, and already the media and cable giants seem to be eyeing the reintroduction of bundles to make things easier on consumers (and to make their subscriptions stickier).As Comcast’s Matthew Strauss put it, "The great un-bundling could give birth to the great re-bundling.” He should know. Strauss is the former executive vice president of Comcast's Xfinity Services; he was recently put in charge of Peacock, the company’s own streaming product set to launch in April with content provided by its NBCUniversal sports and entertainment division. It will join Netflix, Disney+, Apple TV+, Amazon Prime Video, HBO Max and many more in the new streaming marketplace."How could someone possibly navigate all these apps? That's not how you watch TV,” Strauss said in a phone interview in September. “My prediction is that we're going to come full circle."Strauss and I were on the topic because Comcast had just made something called Xfinity Flex free to customers who subscribe to the company’s internet services but not its cable-TV packages. Flex is essentially a dashboard where users can access streaming subscriptions. It’s a lot like the home screen shown when powering up a Roku, Apple TV or Amazon Fire TV Stick — a display of tiles teasing different programs or services. The Xfinity X1 cable service is still front and center for Comcast, but Flex is a sign that the company is at least exploring how to cater to what may some day be a mostly internet-only customer base. While it may not be a bundle, it’s not hard to make the leap and envision a day when Comcast tries to offer bundles of streaming apps to its internet subscribers, serving as the go-between for programmers and customers just like it does in the cable world. Walt Disney Co. is already providing some evidence that it’s thinking the same way. As I noted in my column Tuesday, the entertainment giant recognizes that many viewers want more than a single app dedicated to superhero flicks and G-rated content. That’s why, alongside the launch of Disney+, it also began offering a $13-a-month bundle that tacks on Hulu and ESPN+. While Apple Inc.’s own original works such as “The Morning Show” can be watched with an Apple TV+ subscription, the company also has separately taken to aggregating rival apps in Apple TV Channels, where users can sign up on an a-la-carte basis. Similarly, Amazon.com Inc. has Prime Video and Amazon Channels. These aggregation efforts could all be precursors to bundling.Charter Communications Inc. CEO Tom Rutledge, during a September investor conference, discussed the challenges for so-called direct-to-consumer businesses — such as Disney+, CBS All Access, and so on — that traditionally haven’t had to deal directly with subscribers because the cable giants had typically maintained those relationships. Suddenly, programmers are having to handle billing and service issues and come up with customer-retention strategies. (Disney got a taste of this Tuesday, when its brand-new app was hit by technological glitches.) “All of those activities we do on behalf of traditional pay-TV vendors,” Rutledge said. It’s very hard to get “economies of scale in the direct-to-consumer marketplace like we’ve gotten out of the historic business.” That certainly sounds like someone who’s ready to negotiate some new distribution partnerships. Direct-to-consumer is industry jargon referring to how a streaming app bypasses the traditional distributors — flying directly past Charter and Comcast to the end user. So wouldn’t it be something if the winners of the streaming wars turned out to be none other than the cable companies? At the very least, remnants of their bundling model are sure to live on in streaming.To contact the author of this story: Tara Lachapelle at firstname.lastname@example.orgTo contact the editor responsible for this story: Beth Williams at email@example.comThis column does not necessarily reflect the opinion of the editorial board or Bloomberg LP and its owners.Tara Lachapelle is a Bloomberg Opinion columnist covering the business of entertainment and telecommunications, as well as broader deals.
