Answer: Babbl Communications is a Third-Party Internet Service Provider (ISP)
Ummm. So what exactly does that mean?
A while back, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) mandated that telephone and cable companies sell access to their networks to independent Internet service providers (ISPs) at regulated wholesale prices. The intention is to allow other smaller companies to enter the market to offer consumers more choice and increase competition.
Yes, you got it: give consumers more choice. It’s a good thing!
Babbl Communications is one of those smaller companies offering Babbl Internet as another option for internet services.
Built for You, the Consumer.
How Does It Work?
The model is based on new providers purchasing access to the last-mile networks of the incumbent ISP and selling a competitive service under a different brand.
The Third-Party ISP (that’s us) is then responsible for branding, marketing, provisioning services, billing, and operational logistics such as supply chain, network, and customer experience.
What Exactly Does That Mean?
What it means is that Babbl buys access to the wiring that has existed for years in your neighbourhood, and then we create our own connection to the Internet. Our customers get the benefit of dealing with a small, Western Canadian company that can provide you with a robust Internet experience at a lower price.
Why is it Good for the Consumer?
Be the First to Babbl.
Our mission is to provide Western Canada with reliable and affordable internet services, but we do not want to do it in a traditional way. Internet Access does not need to be complicated. Our model is to put our customers in charge – they know what they want – and Babbl will provide a simple solution for them to get it and pay less.
