Re: The need for wifi passwords strikes home!

be it one's internet account or one's cell account .. you should be able to set a "warning $ level". when your monthly costs encroaches on your "warning $ level", you get a notification so you can take appropriate action even if it's simply to call the vendor to figure out what the blink is going on. it's obscene that vendors are allowed to "spring" these outrageous bills on folks without any advance warning.

this should be mandatory for all ISP\Cell providers ..

cheers from Toronto ..

It is mandatory for cell providers isn't it? It was part of the new CRTC regulations? If this type of internet (data) is provided over cellular technology shouldn't the rules apply?

I use Virgin Mobile and I get a text when I get close to my cap. They were doing that long before the CRTC rules.

If this customer isn't using the cell service for a phone how would they notify her? Most likely by email? Was she checking her rogers provided email account (or setting it up to forward to whatever email account she actually uses?)

Wireless Code covers domestic roaming and wireless data - depends on when the contract was signed as well.
