Unlimited Music is a service that comes with Videotron's Premium mobile plans, and lets customers stream music without eating up their monthly data allowance. Not everyone has been as happy with the service as Videotron's customers. Since Unlimited Music launched back in September 2015, it has been a prickly topic of debate with some of the country's wireless carriers - including Bell, Rogers, and Telus.
Rogers quickly filed a complaint with the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC), saying that Unlimited Music breaks regulated rules that prohibit Canadian telecoms from favouring customers when it comes to wireless data. The hearing began on on October 31, 2016 and the issue has dragged on since then.
Tomorrow afternoon, the CRTC will hold a briefing via teleconference and WebEx, to educate the media on its decisions surrounding the Differential Pricing Practices proceedings, and on its examination of Videotron's Unlimited Music Service. The CRTC will provide information and experts will be available to answer questions from the media.
If you wish to attend the event, CRTC requests that you first sign up by contacting their Media Relations team at 819-997-9403, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Further instructions will be sent after signing up.
