I'm not sure how many of you here are tech savvy but if you haven't heard or unaware Bell Canada is trying to impose low usage caps and high over charge rates for using the internet on a monthly basis.

They Want to limit our usage to 25 gigs of data(about 25 hours worth of SD viewing) and then charge us $2/gig over that 25 gigs(up to $60) then if you go over 300gigs its $1.00/gig after

I currently Use Teksavvy an independent Internet Service provider. I pay 31.99+tax for a 5Mb/s with 200gig usage if these new billing methods pass my bill for the internet will be over $100 for the same service.

Below is a link to a compilation of articles regarding Usage Based Billing

How Does this Affect CR, This will deter Canadian customers from getting premium membership as they will get double charged for your services.

Bell, Rogers, Shaw don't want services like CR or Netflix to be cheaply available to us they want us to keep paying for Cable/Satellite TV.

How to Fight it?
