Rural Internet service provider YourLink Inc. asked the CRTC to order SaskTel to upgrade its Ethernet backhaul lines to handle more Internet capacity. In a complaint filed with the commission Jan. 31, YourLink, a Vecima Networks Inc. subsidiary, said SaskTel was “impeding competition” in rural Saskatchewan communities by limiting wholesale customers using its Ethernet backhaul service to 100 Mbps of monthly capacity in some locations. The company said it asked SaskTel to upgrade those circuits to 200 Mbps or better to help YourLink handle growth in consumer bandwidth consumption. Increasing YourLink's backhaul capacity would otherwise require “significant additional financial resources” and “result in a much longer implementation process,” the complaint said, and would cost YourLink $1.5 million. YourLink said SaskTel may also provide competing rural Internet services over its LTE network, and asked the commission to order SaskTel to upgrade its Ethernet circuits to 200 Mbps or better by Dec. 31, 2013. “YourLink's network has reached capacity and Sasktel's rollout of its LTE network is imminent,” the company said.
