CRTC orders Rogers to file compliance reports over Internet announcements
The CRTC has found that Rogers Cable Inc. breached conditions of licence and broadcast distribution rules by advertising its high-speed Internet service on its community channels, promotional channels, and local inserts on U.S. specialty channels – Broadcasting Public Notice 2002-44. The commission is requiring Canada’s largest cableco to file quarterly compliance reports for the next three years, beginning September 1. The Independent Members of the Canadian Association of Internet Providers had filed a complaint with the commission last January arguing that Rogers’ actions breached CRTC rules and were anti-competitive (NL, Feb. 11/02 and Jan. 14/02). For more details, see the Aug. 15/02 issue of Network Letter affiliate publication Canadian Communications Reports.
