Special Interview with Tom Copeland, Chairman, Canadian Association of Internet Providers a division of CATAAlliance

The following quote is from Open Media www.openmedia.com

The CRTC just decided to let your Internet Service Provider put a meter on the Internet!
Stop the Meter
Bell Canada and other big telecom companies can now freely impose usage-based billing on independent Internet Service Providers (indie ISPs) and YOU. Big Telecom companies are obviously trying to gouge consumers, control the Internet market, and ensure that consumers continue to subscribe to their television services.

This means we’re looking at a future where ISPs will charge per byte, the way they do with smart phones. If we allow this to happen Canadians will have no choice but to pay more for less Internet.

This will crush innovative services, Canada’s digital competitiveness, and your wallet.

We need to stand up for the Internet.

        The main issue is that small internet service providers who resell internet access are given the same limitations as average consumers.

      I have been using the internet for many many years and I have yet to hear of something so ridiculous, and seriously unacceptable as metered internet use. This is totally not even an option. Ten of ten people I surveyed on this very subject just today, all had very serious intentions of simply phoning and cancelling service. No one to offer a service to makes them far more reasonable in their offerings.
