Depatie and Stevens: Bosom Buddies

Clearly Robert Depatie has been spending too much time in Alaska.  His arguments for why studios and content producers should subsidize his network were put forward by US Senator Ted “It’s a series of tubes” Stevens months ago. They’re just as wrong now as they were then. 

Depatie wants content providers to pay extra for access to the Videotron Network.  He calls it a “transmission tariff”.  Mais, Robert, mon frère, we already pay!  Content providers who wish to put their content on the network pay a fee to be connected.  Content consumers who wish to consume that content pay another fee.

What it really boils down to is that Monsieur Depatie doesn’t have the stones to pass a price increase on to his customers.
