    Metered internet coming to Canada

    The CRTC has decided to allow ISP's to put d/l caps on idependents. Bell is implementing these new caps starting tomorrow. Read the story http://openmedia.ca/news/openmediaca...uture-internet

    Sign the petition at http://openmedia.ca/meter

    I already know people who are seriously considering quitting WoW. As for Netflix.ca, goodbye in all likelihood.

    It's not even a real country anyway.

    Warboxer head over to the offical forums instead or some other fan site where comments like that are appreciated...

    I only read the article briefly but what type of limits are they talking about. I do believe some sort of limit where the speed is decreased is fairly common in many countries, mostly on mobile connections but even on stationary ones, but it is ususally so high that it more or less only affects the top % or so. Or were they planning to charge per data right from the start? (so 1990s :-)

    the government has already stepped in over the CRTC and said that if the CRTC doesn't revoke this move, they will do it for them.
