Ottawa is ordering the CRTC to review its recent decision – that the federal government says effectively prevents certain low-cost wireless plans – from being offered to customers.

Innovation Minister Navdeep Bains says a decision earlier this year by the telecommunications regulator essentially prevents smaller Wi-Fi providers from offering cheaper plans – and consequently limits choice in the market.

Bains says he will direct the CRTC to rethink its position.

The minister announced his order while speaking at an annual conference in Toronto – for the Canadian telecommunications industry.
