Canada’s federal CRTC recently made a decision to regulate VoIP services.

Added John Meldrum, vice-president of SaskTel: “By regulating only our VoIP service, the commission is attempting to maintain artificially high prices. This also inhibits innovation, reducing the telephone companies’ incentives to develop and launch new services.”

I am pleasantly surprised to see these large telcos of old embracing new technology. Considering the cable companies will potentially have them at a disadvantage by offering broadband via cable instead of DSL makes me wonder what they have up their sleeve.
