Your report should cover at least two of the major companies (i.e. Rogers, Bell etc.) and, if possible, at least one smaller independent company not owned by a major player. You might find that the smaller independent firm(s) offer much different plans. If so, please explain why their approach might differ from that of a larger firm. If there are no independent firms not owned by a large player (supplier) what does this imply about the nature of the marketplace and the degree of competition. Use economic logic to help direct your analysis.

If possible your paper should address the level of competition, that is in your opinion, whether this is rising or falling, whether social welfare is improving or worsening, and what the government regulatory response to these developments should be (if any).
