Re: why Metered BB will fail

said by Wilsdom:

I think those companies don't mind the state calibrating their meters for free. They don't intentionally overcharge because it would eventually get them in trouble anyway, but unnoticed undercharging could really hurt them because their product actually costs them $/unit.

Sorry to say.. But that's a great way to put it if you don't know what you're talking about..

Rogers is actually are coming out with a propaganda "report" that contradicts the OECD report.. haha

So the LYA 'report' defines broadband as 128kbps or greater
the CRTC defines 128kbps as 'high speed' and broadband as 1.5mbps
oh and the OCED report defines broadband as 256kbps
OCED report also takes into account modem rental fees plus they don't include bundle prices ('preselection')

The LYA report is peppered with praise for Rogers as well as excuses why its lagging in some respects.
It boggles my mind how they came up with this average price, the cheapest solution Rogers offers is higher than the average, meanwhile the LYA praises Rogers as being the largest ISP in the country. So largest ISP + $35 minimum plan = $33 average
