The only reason Rogers and Bell are doing this is to try and steal back customers from companies like Acanac. As the canucks first Started the cap on home broadband and the US soon followed I wonder if the likes of ATT and comcast will follow suit on flat rate overage?
I would gladly pay ATT ( as shameful as that sounds) and extra $10 per mth for my unlimited DSL back instead of $10 per every 50 GB over 150, Im almost sure most ATT U-verse and Comcast users fell the same.
Alas I wont hold my breath, A guy can dream cant he?
The only reason they're doing this is because of this week's wholesale pricing decision, which was rumoured to be released sometime this month.
Its widely speculated that the prices are going down (ie in favour of the wholesalers), so Rogers, Bell & Videotron (they introduced theirs late last week as well) are hoping to lock people into contracts with the unlimited option, hoping people won't flock to the wholesalers. -- Battle.net Tech Support MVP
