Sask: Sasktel keeping local IT industry down

From CBC:

"There is a sense that government – executive government plus the Crown sector – is the biggest competitor of many firms in the IT sector in Saskatchewan," the report said.

The authors of the report threw cold water on the idea that government can create a leading edge IT environment, paving the way for private industry to come in. That hasn't happened in any other jurisdiction, it said.

Many in the IT industry feel SaskTel – which has expanded from ordinary phone service to cell phones, internet access, burglar alarms and other products – is a particular problem.

Finally someone (other than us) put it into writing.
