IP peering is when two networks exchange traffic with each other freely, providing access to their caches, bringing about a faster connection for the end users. It is another factor that could improve Internet connectivity in the Philippines on top of telcos improving their infrastructure and experiments like the White Space Project, which utilizes unused TV frequency to deliver Internet services to far flung areas. Internet a basic service?
Special to The Globe and Mail Published October 10, Updated May 9, An Angus Reid study conducted last year found that almost half of all Canadians would give up watching television before they would ditch their Internet or telephone service.
High-speed Internet, like telephone service, has become an essential service. Unfortunately for Internet users, Canadian cable and telecommunications companies know this and have spent the last few years jacking up Internet pricing at rates well in excess of inflation.
The big Internet service providers have also cut back on the level of service they provide: A decade ago, Internet plans were unlimited and often included extra features such as music subscriptions and free photo storage.
For example, a new Rogers Ultra-Lite customer in was given an unlimited bandwidth cap. Inthat was reduced to a cap of 60GB and in that cap was reduced to 2GB. The Ultra-Lite package has since been cancelled with new users being forced to buy a more expensive package.

Not-so Humble Bundle In an attempt to make these high prices more palatable to consumers, Canadian cable and telephone companies have introduced the "bundle.
In Ontario, Rogers and Bell offer a discount of around 7 to 10 per cent when buyers purchase both Internet and telephone service while discounts in Western Canada are typically a little greater. While a 7 to 10 per cent discount off your current telephone and Internet bill is better than nothing, Canadian consumers looking to achieve greater savings should consider signing up with a third party Internet access provider or TPIA.
Simply speaking TPIAs are wholesalers who purchase Internet bandwidth and telephone service from the big cable and telephone companies at a significant discount and resell individual service to homeowners.
In addition, some of the larger TPIAs such as Primus and TekSavvy have augmented their offerings by investing millions in their own hardware and call centres which allow them to deliver a level of service which is every bit as good or better than what you will receive from the big six Internet service providers Bell, Shaw, Rogers, Telus, Videotron and Cogeco.
Beat the Bundle The following is a rough idea of my basic home phone and Internet service requirements.
I would describe our households needs as moderate. We required more than what was typically offered in the base or "lite" packages offered by Bell but certainly did not need the most expensive Internet and phone packages.
Home Phone Needs Two calling features: Call Display and Voice Mail minutes of long distance calling in Canada Internet Relatively fast Internet connection 10 to 20 Mbps downloads to ensure that when everyone in the family of four was using the Internet, we would not have any bandwidth issues.
With two YouTube-loving teenagers, a Netflix subscription and numerous computers, tablets and smartphones we wanted a relatively large bandwidth cap of to GB per month.
Here is what the primary Internet and phone providers in my area could deliver to meet my needs. Bell Home Phone Choice offered unlimited Local Calling plus five local calling features and minutes of long distance in Canada and the U.
This package was cheaper than Bell and similar to Rogers but offered many more calling features and much more in long distance. In addition, they offer a triple value package which includes unlimited local home phone with 18 calling features, unlimited 7Mbps High Speed Internet and unlimited worldwide calling Canada, U.
Teksavvy This company had far and away the greatest variety of offerings. Looking to save money on your Internet and phone service, then beat the bundle and look for third party alternatives.
