Re: [INTERNET] Overage usage skyrocketing
said by J E F F:And the backlash against UBB when Tony Clement stepped in and said the CRTC's ruling wouldn't be allowed to stand wasn't political?
Things like gas and electric are political, if prices are too high, backlash against politicians. All gas, water and electric have been metered long before Internet, as per government laws. People don't want metered Internet.

Of course it was political. These guys will do anything to save their ass. But technically, caps are a form of UBB. They're just high enough not to piss enough people off. Except those of us who either torrent or download legally, such as streaming.
And you know why these guys don't want you streaming Netflix and Hulu, right?
HOWEVER, cable shouldn't worry about that. I just read today that cable subscriptions went *UP* this year, not down. Why? Because we still want our live sports..though without NHL, that might change.
