Internet customer is now shopping around

With my daughter losing her job due to COVID-19 and the fact she wants to work from home on the computer and that you charge by the giga-byte, I have to say good-bye. My daughter and I cannot afford it. I have been a customer of yours for over 20 years with both the Internet and cell phones.

A lot of friends on Facebook have told me about different Internet providers in the area and I will be contacting them. I am also enclosing a newspaper article from this week’s Chronicle stating that “measures to rectify the high cost of Internet access for rural Canadian students” has not been taken care of.

With this second round of COVID-19, schools may close and parents will not be able to afford the Internet costs not just due to the price but also due to the fact they may not be working.

Should the government decide to provide the money for the kids, just remember it will come out of your pocket too.

I believe that one of the reasons that companies do not provide the rural areas with unlimited Internet as they do not make a profit. Think about the reason we live so far apart. Cows, pigs, chickens, vegetables etc. have to have acres of land. And also that you eat this things. We are providing you with your food but you are not giving us unlimited Internet because you do not make a profit on us.

I hope you had a very nice Thanksgiving dinner.
