The company is named after the inventor of telephone “Graham Bell” who is also a co-founder of bell Telephone Company. Its head quarter is in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. It also provides DSL internet services.

Bell vs Rogers:

The Toronto condo market is one of the rapidly growing market in the world. a very fierce flourishing business that is shuddering the city to its foundations. But Bell Canada has for some time protested to the CRTC that it is not attaining its fair share of the telecommunications hook-ups. According to reports, Bell Canada protested that between 2010 and the end of 2014, the top seven builders in the Greater Toronto Area put up 85,000 condo units in the city but Bell Canada cannot acquire 20% of them.

Bell’s major contender snatched more of the market, suggesting Bell has some kind of a poor strategy. Or maybe condo builders and developers, who have full control of the buildings, have strong business logic for favoring Rogers. It is, ultimately, a highly contender market and they would have no courage to threaten the market value of their developments.

Instead of fighting, however, Bell has turned to the CRTC, a government agency that consider discipline over competition, laws rather than prices, directions rather the markets. Instead of competition, Bell wants the CRTC to direct the installation of Bell fiber optic cable to every department in two new condo projects, the York Harbor Club and the Chaz Yorkville.

The CRTC has been trying to impose mandated condo installations for years, despite of the cost they are bearing and practicality. The possessor of the York Harbour Club, in a additionto the CRTC last year, said it struck a deal to empower Rogers to become the beginningtelecom supplier and it would be a breach of its property and civil righteousness if the CRTC were to direct Bell.
The developers and builders also say that, if the condo project is engaged, unit owners can select to bring in Bell.

In the middle of a highly ruthless market, the CRTC would also undercut competition, high and real competition between Bell, Rogers and other telecom suppliers. But the CRTC has a strategy of fortifying all end users have access to competing services, and it seems decided to judge that Bell has been unfairly reject the right to induct fibre as it sees fit.

In the place of giving permission for competition to settle these problems to the advantage of condo developers, builders and others, the CRTC is inclination toward working for the benefit of Bell.

In this way, government is also involved in creating barriers for the new entrants in the market of telecommunication industries.
