Staying Spoiler-Free During Game of Thrones Season 6

Winter has come. Finally. If you’re a Game of Thrones fan, the wait between the end of Season 5 and the premiere of Season 6 was a long one. Now that the hit HBO show has caught up with George R.R. Martin’s books, there’s been nowhere to look for answers to some of the series’ biggest questions.

Blog #4 – Axia to the CRTC

Well Canada… Today was the big day. This morning Axia’s CEO Art Price presented to the #CRTC.

We took a different approach. We wanted to focus on Canada’s future and that means fibre.

CRTC Blog #3 – Okay Bell - Let's see what you got!

CRTC Blog #2 – Accessibility groups to Telus

Today was my first full day attending the CRTC public hearing. The morning started off with a conversation by Deaf Wireless Canada.

This makes total sense… unfortunately in most areas they are forced to purchase bundled packages which include voice that many people in the deaf community do not use.
