Did you know that we've built a platform for Canadians to connect with their local elected officials and each other to build their own Internet?

Get on it and spread the word - together we can take the reins of our digital future!
Canada has fallen behind when it comes to Internet access in smaller and rural communities, but if we all work together to build municipal broadband, we can achieve better, more affordable internet for all of us.

Encrypting the web is key in this era and our friends at Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) are up for the challenge.

Here's their plan and how you can help:
Encrypting the web is a more important challenge than ever. Now, EFF has teamed up with Sandwich Video and Baratunde Thurston to explain and promote this mission via video. Sandwich is the production company behind some of the best product launch videos in tech, and you may know Baratunde from his work on The Daily Show, The Onion, and New York Times bestseller How To Be Black.

Empirical evidence supports long-standing argument that the mere existence of surveillance shapes our online behaviour and leads to self-censorship.
This has always been intuitively clear. Now, there is mounting empirical evidence proving it.

Things are looking gloomy for consumer advocates as Donald Trump's transition team reveals plans to remake the Federal Communications Commission.
Plan is a "declaration of war" on consumers and competition, opponent says.

Ars Technica seems to have one spin while Multichannel, the article which Ars references has a completely different view. Multichannel seems have a more balanced report while the Ars article only superficially reports on that report, which it got from Multichannel, and adds an alarmist perspective from an advocacy group representative.

Let's wait and see, shall we? There has been so much alarmist rhetoric surrounding Trump and all the supposed evil he will bring forth onto the earth that it all looks like conspiracy theory.

Canadians have been held hostage to expensive, middle of the road Internet service for too long. Let’s do something about it.

Email your elected officials now and ask them to bring community broadband to your town at: community-broadband.ca

I think that complaining to politicians, particularly in the city of Ottawa, is not very productive. If we want it, WE have to build it, not complain to city governments about it. In urban centers, we have to hold city governments to account when they preference incumbents over new efforts.

"As TekSavvy customers settle in to lowered bills and Bell customers prepare for their increase on February 1, a new battle for affordable Internet access is happening right under our noses: the price of next generation, ultra-high speed fibre Internet."

Canadians are speaking out for a national broadband strategy at: act.openmedia.org/broadband-plan
Telecom costs for Bell Canada customers are increasing in 2017. Unfortunately for Bell customers, the $5 monthly increase on home Internet comes hot on the heels of an unprecedented move from independent Internet service provider TekSavvy, who made waves with promises to increase speeds and cut prices by nearly the same amount.

Nordic countries enjoy some of the best Internet in the world. What makes it so accessible and what can Canada do to catch up?
