Comments on news posted 2011-02-07 08:57:44: With the CRTC reviewing their usage-based billing order after unprecedented Canadian consumer backlash, some carriers are now backing off their planned punitive low cap, high overage pricing models -- at least until the smoke clears. ..

Scum

Yet they capitulated so fast you have to wonder. Not to mention they were going to apply UBB on their own co-located customers.

Scumbag bell clones

Go elsewhere if you can.

So true

Re: Scum

Primus has THE WORSE billing practices I've ever dealt with. I think you're right, they're probably a Bell clone and using their customer service policy manual.

My first reaction...

Sure they were

"Primus was a strong opponent of the UBB effort and argued that the planned pricing was in no way tied to reasonable, real-world economics."

In other words, "we were going to stick it up your arses, we truly were, but the tides changed." Best be believing they will catch you on the rebound though. Just wait until the CRTC sticks the UBB up the Canadians's collective A_s_S!

Re: Sure they were

what get me is why this open to debate in the forum. or even why is primus still in an ad hoc forum. put it in the canadian forum where it belongs, unlock the thread and let the people speak. this is just nuts the way primus has been throttled/silenced on this board

Primus and UBB

Primus decided to be safe, and apply UBB based on the originally approved tariffs in TN7181. The fact that in the end, when the tariffs weren't applied, they did the right thing, and will reverse the charges.

I can't fault them for that.
