My understanding is that they're not allowing. They're requiring. Therein lies the difference. The companies don't have a choice.
Citation? Neither Cogeco or Atria (or Rogers, to the best of my knowledge) are changing their plans because of CRTC's ruling. This is specific to Bell and their request to change their wholesale billing model.

While Atria is a weird entity that's gone through a lot of changes in the last 5 years, I didn't mention Atria as an example of non-interference, only pointing out that there are more than two last mile providers in Ontario.
