That said the type of investment Bell is talking about and their aggressive timeframe suggest they are going to heavily focus on urban network first and address the growing service level gaps in rural Manitoba later. That could change though based on the CRTC issuing a "Broadband Code" similar to like they did with the "Wireless Code". Depending on what the CRTC says on that front it is possible Bell walks away from the deal on their own.
I don't see anything suggesting prices would come down. I highly suspect prices will dramatically increase.
