Shaw is clueless in Canada.

As if they dont have to pay for the upstream from their streaming servers.
What a load of crap.

I thought bandwidth was really expensive.... isn't that why Shaw, Bell and Rogers charge between a $1.00 to $2.50 if you go over your cap? (Netflix should be bankrupt if that were true)

No, it's not even. Reason why they charge you over is because they're greedy. Look at Japan/Korea and Europe, they have way faster speeds and 100x cheaper than what we got.

I was trying to be funny. Land overage fees are price gouging.... there's no other way to understand it.
