Canada's telecom regulator enforces lower wholesale internet rates

TORONTO, Oct 6 (Reuters) - Canada's major internet service providers must lower the wholesale rates they charge smaller rivals for access to their networks, the country's telecom regulator said on Thursday, in a move it said would protect consumer choice.

The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission said it has set lower interim rates that established providers - including BCE Inc, Rogers Communications Inc, and Telus Corp - can charge to resellers, calling some of the companies' own proposals "not just and reasonable".
