This is nothing more then blatant anti competition by the major ISPs. Why license content when they can just overcharge us for using any other VOD source on the web.... This is nothing more then an attempt to prevent cable cutters because of netflix, amazon vod, justin.tv, itunes and of course bit torrent. The CRTC has allowed them to cripple our internet and rob us blind with these insane overage fees. Until every single person switches to teksavvy(only isp willing to be competitive rather then collude) we will have no chance at change....
At least in the west we can switch from shaw to telus since telus is not being a bhell follower, for now anyway. There is no reason for these pathetic caps in this day and age. This is a bigger scam then bottled water which 75% of comes straight from your local municipalitys which you pay the cost of cleaning it and then pay for again at hyper inflated prices.

Is there a reason you haven't opted for a higher plan with Rogers, or switched to TekSavvy? It's for this very reason I've decided I've had enough with Rogers (60 GB / month? That's useless these days), and I'm making the switch.
It just seems to me that $50 / month in overage fees is pointless when you could be paying a lot less, especially if you went with TekSavvy. I plan to start using services like OnLive and Netflix, and I have no intention of wasting money doing so when there's a perfectly viable, better, and cheaper option available.
