Adopt national protection code for consumers, Rogers urges CRTC

silentbrad (1488951) writes | more than 2 years ago

Canada 1

silentbrad (1488951) writes "Canada’s largest mobile service provider is urging the federal telecom regulator to implement a mandatory national consumer protection code in order to diffuse the threat posed by a growing hotchpotch of provincial regulations for wireless services. Rogers Communications Inc. submitted that proposal to the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission in an application late Thursday. In doing so, Rogers becomes the second major carrier to ask the CRTC to resume active regulation of the terms and conditions for wireless service contracts, a practice that it largely abandoned during the 1990s. Nonetheless, those regulatory powers, while latent, remain in the Telecommunications Act, meaning the CRTC can still exercise its authority over those matters."

Admittedly this is not a big deal, but it is a pet peeve of mine.

The proper word is "defuse" or "de-fuse", not "diffuse".
