    AWS, which stands for Amazon Web Services, offers a suite of computer services for businesses delivered over the Internet, like data storage and analytics.

    Modern telecommunications services, in particular broadband Internet, play an important role in the lives of Canadians. By completing this short survey, you are helping the Canadian Radiotelevision and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) examine which telecommunications services Canadians consider necessary to participate in the digital economy. The CRTC is an independent agency of the Government of Canada responsible for regulating Canada's communication system.

    We are asking Canadians to respond to this survey in terms of their own personal use of telecommunications services at home. It should take approximately 10 to 15 minutes to complete.

    Your participation in the study is voluntary and completely confidential and your responses will remain anonymous.
