One good thing about this

Once the US sees how much of a total clusterfuck this turns out to be you'll never get it here.

LOL, thanks for the laugh. the ISPs here will ignore the clusterfuck and see all the money flowing in to the coffers. That is all this is, another way to charge more and drive customers to the ISPs own servers(think TWC VOD compare to Netflix).

Let's not forget the bandwidth management most American Cable companies use. Sandvine technologies, which is a Canadian company.

American ISP's would jump at the chance to get away with something like this. Making internet at home as expensive with huge overage fees, just like cell phones currently are.

No. Do you honestly think after all the shit is this going to cause that America ISPs will want that same shit matter how greedy they are? Think about it. Do cable/DSL ISPs have 5 GB caps and $10 per GB overages like mobile ISPs do? No why? Because customers wouldn't put up with that. Trust me if Charter and Comast and Time Warner could get away with 5 GB caps and $10 per GB overage fees they would. Time Warner couldn't even get away with a 40 GB cap and $2 per GB overages. Even with a 250 GB cap Comcast and Charter ahve gotten shit.
