My internet is with Bell Canada and with Ultra High Speed I have unlimited access. Sounds good eh! Not when you consider that Bell shapes my download and upload speeds. DON'T FOOL YOURSELVES ANY LONGER CANADIANS, sorry, I wasn't yelling but it's time we wake up and realize that groups like the CRTC are not independent bodies. They have their backbenchers just like every other group that governs rules and regs for any part of our lives. Theirs happen to be Bell, Rogers etc., and they want what they want.
We have Tony Clement to Thank for introducing the bill that seems to have forced the quashing of this decision, for now, but again, don't fool yourselves, this gouging of citizen average will be back. This topic will be in the news again and why, because these companies like Bell Canada will not let them go away. They see an untapped market with billions of $'s at stake, you think they'll let that go. Not a chance. We may have won this battle, but the war is not over.
There is no doubt that these mega-bloodsuckers will someday strike a deal with the government, tell the CRTC to reinstate this provision and you will be paying dearly. If they were to set the cap @ 25GB. per billing period, I am 8 days into my currant billing period and have used 21 GB. already. I am born and raised in Canada and have been an avid Government watcher for many years. Trust me, you have not heard the last of this issue.
