How does this work?

Will there be different $/gbps prices for different ISPs? Different for DSL/Cable? Will some ISPs pay more for interconnection than others

It will likely end up being specific to each incumbent. It could be any number of things... The flat rate part could be affected... The CBB is almost certainly going to go down. Could be retroactive stuff in there too.

Retroactive! HUGE CASH REBATES TO ALL CABLE CUSTOMERS WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!1!!ONE!

Or I suppose you could, you know, build some margin and reinvest in the network, but that sounds like corporate fatcaterry if I ever heard it. I want my $0.57.

Haha.. Who knows what will happen... We sheltered you guys as much as humanly possible though in the last year. I took all the math and through it out the window and pretty much went with my gut on what I thought the most I could go without completely destroying the trust you guys had in us. The rates would all have been $5-$10/mth higher otherwise.

More like retroactive recovering profits ISPs have cut themselves short of from setting their retail rates with some degree of speculation about the CBB outcome to avoid massive churn rate in the meantime.

So unless the CRTC cuts surprisingly deeply into CBB rate, I do not expect much headroom for a retail refund. It is still possible that retail rates will increase if the final rates turn out to be higher than what ISPs guessed they might be when they set their interim rates.

I was making the same point. Hence the allcaps and the demand for $0.57.
