Canadians forced to pay for internet usage PER gigabyte.
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.

That's what happens once you let them regulate guns like you'll did. They get this power trip going and decide you'll give up more freedoms. Slowly tightening the screws they are!hf

The amount of love and good feelings you have at the end of your life is equal to the love and good feelings you create during your life.- mine
Yes, the things that others think, say, or do will sometimes hurt you— until they do
not anymore.What will get you from here to there most quickly is total honesty—
being willing to assert, acknowledge, and declare exactly how you feel about a thing.
Say your truth—kindly, but fully and completely. Live your truth, gently, but totally
and consistently. Change your truth easily and quickly when your experience brings
you new clarity.-God

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.

Re: Canadians forced to pay for internet usage PER gigabyte.
I have unlimited and have not received any notice that the company I deal with is going to change this

and bell has always charged for the amount you use thats why I dropped them as soon as I could, not only that thier service trully sucked..I like to speak to someone who knows English and understand the Canadian way,not someone across the ocean that can barely talk English and has no idea on a Canadian map where I live..

so for now I am happy with my internet provider and will stick with them as long as I can
