Puisque /parce que

In writing challenge A2 week 49 (?late March 2017) it says: - They're very expensive, these phones! - Yes, granny but it's because you can go on the internet --> Oui, mamie. mais c'est parce qu'on peut aller sur internet. Since mamie already knows the phones are expensive, shouldn't it be "puisqu'on peut" ?

Bonjour Joakim ! "Puisque" in French means "since" expressing a cause, so it sounds weird in this context: indeed, just like in English, you wouldn't use "puisque" after "c'est" (but it is since we can go on the internet). I hope that's helpful! À bientôt !
