The 2017 Price Comparison Study of Telecommunications Services in Canada and Select Foreign Jurisdictions, prepared by Nordicity Group Limited, is the tenth (2017) edition of the annual telecommunications services price comparison report. The purpose of this Study is to provide a detailed comparative price analysis of telecommunications services within Canada, as well as an international comparison (G7 + Australia).
As in previous years, the telecommunications services examined in this Study were classified in five categories: fixed telephony, mobile wireless telephony, fixed broadband internet, mobile wireless internet and bundled services. Individual service baskets were defined according to increasing levels of service usage and feature availability under each category.
National incumbents, regional service providers, and resellers/mobile virtual network operators were sampled for the Study. Domestically, prices were collected in six cities across Canada (Halifax, Montreal, Toronto, Winnipeg, Regina and Vancouver). Internationally, data was collected in eight countries, including four cities in the United States (Boston, Kansas City, Minneapolis and Seattle), and the largest city in all other countries (Australia, United Kingdom, France, Italy, Germany and Japan).
