Hopefully this gets overturned for good.

Finally, something we agree on!

In all seriousness, I wouldn't have a problem with UBB if I had the opportunity to actually LOWER my bill when I used less. But as we all know, that's not going to happen.

Ha! You're right. UBB is nothing more then a money grab. They want their cake and it eat it too. While we, the consumer, take one to the shorts. I'm glad to see that like what happened in the US, the unhappy canadians made a ton of noise over this.

Very true. If the bill is lower for light use, the revenue loss would be higher than the gain from heavy users. And bhell knows if ubb is implemented, there will be much less so called heavy users. Since the bill is not lowered, saying heavy users subsidize light users is simply a lie. Heavy or advanced users just make better use of networks and potentially put an obstacle for bhell's wide deployment of iptv. As matter of fact, iptv is the real-time bandwidth hog.

The cable tv providers are hellbent on increasing the cost of the internet to protect their revenues. It's that simple.
