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.
