    The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) is warning phone and Internet customers of Téliphone Navigata Westel Communications (TNW) that many of them may be disconnected as of November 21, 2016 due to a commercial dispute between TNW and TELUS Communications Company.
