Canada Voice Over Internet

Hearing Set On Voice-Over-Internet

September 20, 2004

By Staff

Is it possible to change a regulator’s mind in 30 minutes?

That’s roughly how long Bell Canada will have this week to convince the federal telephone watchdog that the emerging world of VOIP—that is, phone service based on Internet protocol—is so disruptive and fast-moving that it isn’t fair to slap regulatory shackles on Ma Bell.

Tomorrow, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission begins a three-day hearing in Ottawa to determine how such an industry-transforming technology can and can’t be sold to Canadians.

Thirty-two other parties will present their views and, after final comments are filed in October, the commission is expected to make a decision sometime this winter.

The CRTC’s bias was exposed in April when, in a controversial preliminary view meant to kick-start public consultation, the regulator said Voip should be treated like any other local phone service.

In other words, Bell , Telus Corp., and other established phone carriers would have to comply with the same price and product bundling rules associated with regulated local calling.

But new Voip entrants such as , Primus, and eventually Rogers Cable wouldn’t face such restrictions.

Bell considers the preliminary view flawed because it fails to recognize how Voip is poised to alter the industry landscape.

Dvai Ghose, an analyst with CIBC World Markets, said the phone giant has a lot to lose, and the cable companies just as much to gain, if it can’t persuade the regulator to take a different approach.

That doesn’t appear likely to some.

“They seem pretty set in their ways,” said one analyst, referring to CRTC chairman Charles Dalfen and vice-chairman of telecom David Colville.

Voip technology breaks conversations into packets of data, transmitting voices the same way the Internet carries e-mail.

A form of Voip service, sometimes referred to as broadband telephony, places phone calls through high-speed Internet connections, which are available from either phone companies or cable companies.

This also makes it possible for foreign companies to offer local service by piggybacking on the phone company’s broadband infrastructure, using relatively few resources of their own.

Likewise, it makes it easier for cable companies, such as Rogers, to enter the local telephone business by using their cable installations.

Rogers Cable already has indicated it plans to introduce a residential Voip service by mid-2005. Vonage, Primus, and Yak are among service providers already offering consumer Voip service.

Imposing regulation would hurt Bell, according to its chief of regulatory affairs, Mirko Bibic, who says Bell would have to wait an average of 63 days for CRTC approval every time it wanted to change the price or structure of a Voip offering.

The lag time would make it difficult to respond competitively to rival offers, Bibic argues.

Ted Rogers, founder and chief executive of Rogers Communications Inc., disagrees. His long-standing concern is that Bell has an unmatched ability to discount and bundle products, making it difficult for newcomers to make a dent in the market.

If the CRTC doesn’t remain firm against Bell, Rogers could roll back its plans.

“We simply will not go into it unless there are changes to the regulatory system,” Rogers said earlier this year.
