No lube for Canadians, say incumbents

»business.financialpost.com/2012/···-canada/

A global Internet industry forecast released Tuesday contains a subtle message for the many Canadian Internet subscribers who’ve been billed “overage” fees after they unwittingly exceeded their monthly data allotment — get used to it.

Canadian providers generally sell plans with lower bandwidth caps than their American peers, which drove percentage revenue gains higher here last year and widened a gap that has opened between Internet plans in the two countries, according to a new study from PwC.

And it is a trend expected to continue.

What most people like to have used on them when certain bodily orifices are penetrated with a hard object.

Someone got it right in one of their comments:
CRTC that is comical these top heavy weights have them in their back pocket, this I know from working with Rogers. I was shocked at the lower caps offered by Bell, Rogers and the gang, I cannot believe they would lower the cap but here it is if you want more pay for it . I believe the disease is the CRTC it must be removed and independent body be instilled.

I suspected you had not, but if I had done my due diligence and had actually read the piece, I could not have had my wee poke/joke.

Will only get worse until we're capped at wireless data levels and on a per MB billed usage while still paying higher monthly premiums than our neighbours down south.

That's what happen when you have George Cope, a former Wireless guy, running Bell Canada. He is milking treating Internet as if it were Wireless data. Bell's counterpart are just mirroring Bell's policy, so that's not going to offer any competition in a duopoly.

Usage quota is just like Limbo Dance for them... How low can you go!?
