Re: Why can't companies just tell the truth?

that lowering caps is a method to increase profits? I would hope most people see it as what it really is, a money grab.

Problem is that the companies own the infrastructure, as well as the media distribution channels, right, etc... As a result, they want to maximize your internet costs so that you are forced to purchase TV services, VOD, etc off them at an inflated rate.

It's my belief that the only way this will ever get resolved is when the government/CRTC steps in and has it so that you can't own the infrastructure and be a content provider as well. Just too much conflict of interest.
