The high cost of home Internet services is taking a bite out of food budgets for low-income Canadians, new survey shows.
Kashima Wright, a personal support worker, gave up her home Internet last fall when the bills began to top $100 a month.
Low-income Canadians are taking money out of their budgets for food, recreation and rent to pay for Internet service, according to a new report that is calling for a national affordable home Internet program. The advocacy group wants the federal Canadian Radio and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) to mandate a $10-per-month high-speed home Internet product for families and individuals living below Statistics Canada’s low income measure (LIM).
Lack of access to the Internet excludes low-income Canadians from equal opportunities to education, employment, government services and modern civic participation, said ACORN Toronto spokeswoman Alejandra Ruiz Vargas.
About 8 per cent either don’t have home Internet service or have cancelled it due to the high cost. Toronto single mother Kashima Wright had to give up her home Internet last fall when the bills began to top $100 a month.

To date, more than 10,000 families are participating in the initiative, which provides Internet at speeds of 10 Mbps. Rogers recently introduced a lower-cost $25-per-month Internet program for all customers that provides 5 Mbps download speeds, Kett added. The CRTC, which has been investigating affordability in telecommunications, is holding public hearings on the issue in April. 58 Percentage of Canadian households with annual incomes of $30,000 or less with home Internet access. 98 Percentage of Canadian households with annual incomes of $120,000 or more with home Internet access. 59 Percentage of survey respondents who pay for Internet by forgoing other household necessities.

The Commonwealth Telecommunications Organisation (CTO) has joined the Alliance for Affordable Internet (A4AI), a coalition of private sector, public sector, and civil society organisations dedicated to achieving affordable access to both mobile and fixed-line Internet in developing countries. A CTO information made available to Africa Telecom & IT by  its Senior Communications Officer, Srini Srinivasan says the primary goal of A4AI is to facilitate the reaching of the UN Broadband Commission’s Broadband Target of entry-level broadband services priced at less than 5 per cent of average monthly income.
Formed in 1901, the CTO is the oldest and largest Commonwealth organisation in the field of Information and Communication Technologies, with over 40 Commonwealth countries and more than 100 other stakeholders, including the private sector, as members. Soon after joining, the CTO was elected as one of the 12 members of the Advisory Council of A4AI, which is the key governing body of the Alliance. Commenting on the occasion, Secretary-General of the CTO, Prof Tim Unwin said “The CTO is delighted to become a member of A4AI and to be elected to its Advisory Council. Adding her thoughts, Executive Director of the Alliance for Affordable Internet, Ms Sonia Jorge said “Persistently high Internet access costs in the developing world continue to act as a major barrier to social and economic development. In 2013 the LIM was $20,933 for an individual and $41,866 for a family of four, after taxes. But tens of thousands of low-income families in subsidized units managed by other non-profits as well as those in market-rent apartments are still without access. The charitable foundation, which views fighting poverty as a matter of human rights, is working with ACORN to ensure low-income people struggling with the high cost of Internet service can participate in the CRTC hearings. Essentially, we provide internet services via wireless connection with speeds comparable to DSL and Cable based modems.

A4AI aims to achieve this goal by making recommendations on policy and regulatory best practices, producing country ratings, undertaking research, developing case studies and encouraging change through in-country engagements and intra-country dialogue. Broadband, particularly Mobile Broadband, is a key priority area of the CTO’s work, due to the potential it has to promote development.
As one of four organisations representing Public Sector and Academia, the CTO will work with the rest of the members of the Advisory Council to provide oversight, strategic direction and high-level decision making for the Alliance.
I am certain that this relationship, whereby we will work collaboratively, drawing on the strengths of each other, will facilitate our members reaching universal Broadband coverage.
By working with CTO and other Alliance members, we will advocate for policy and regulatory practices to drive these costs down and enable the next two billion to come online.

Additionally, we also provide free wireless hotspots at various locations throughout Columbia, MO.
