[quote:Anonymous Coward 12604202:MV8xMzQ3NTY0XzMwMzU3NzI2XzlCNTk0MEE4] Just like ATM cards were to save banks check processing costs and handed out like candy. After the bait and switch, you are paying banks to access your money. Same with the unlimited data. How better to control your information, get you addicted and how can you pull the plug now? Drug dealer thug mentality. Canada in no way is suffering from bandwidth exhaustion. Canada was on of the first nations to create a optical fiber telecommunications infrastructure. Canada has so much dark fiber, they don't know how to utilize it. Perhaps they could help out some American companies on Northern East / West capacity. [/quote]
People have become accustomed to receiving unlimited access to the Internet for a set monthly payment.
But all that is set to change in Canada where metered usage will be introduced next month.
The pay-as-you-go floodgates were opened when the Canadian Radio-Telecommunications Commission's decision last September to allow Bell Canada, the country's largest telecommunications company, to begin usage-based billing.
