its not illegal, they got the CRTC to agree to it years back.
When they started it it was illegal.
Aw nice, now the PM is looking at it: http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news...rs-review-of-internet-billing/article1890567/
Well it made it to on the news tonight so maybe we will see more people inquiring about it and signing the petition.
Ah nice. Just noticed youre in marathon. I stayed there one night when I was traveling from barrie to vancouver by car. Wawa motels were full
OMG!! As if the sh#thole thats is Wawa gets mentioned on TPU. Of all the crazy things :shadedshu
yah its nice little town, were the biggest between sault st marie and thunder bay
If memory servers correctly it was a wedding holding up the motels
I got stuck in Wawa hitch hiking to Vancouver back in my homeless days....not fun.
On Topic: what i dont get with Cogeco is how they offer a 16/1 package for almost $75, yet the have this new Ultimate 30 plan (30/1.5) for $59.95. I obviously switched but i dont get why they still advertise the 16/1 package when only a fool would buy it.
welcome to australian internet.
except that our internet is actually getting better now, offering unlimited plans.
Yea i was just thinking that, here in Australia we have had this charge for going over your monthly usage for god knows how long, depending on the provider it could be per MB or GB and up to $3.
But we arnt stupid and would avoid these plans like the plague, now its getting rare to see but instead of getting charged we just get slowed down to close to Dial-up speeds. No extra charges.
heh, i remember when they used to charge far more than that, more along the lines of $ per MB
these days most ISP's slow you down to a near unusable 64Kb (faster on high speed connections like ADSL2+)
Not i, i am on ADSL2+ and i get slowed to 64Kb (Gay telstra)
But at least we finally have ADSL2+ here thats under $90 a month yay and over 25GB a month, first time EVER.
wow you're getting ripped off.
telstra have 200GB ADSL2+ for $70 a month now, shaped to 128K/1Mb (whatever your upload is)
i pay $90 a month for phone and net and get (true) unlimited adsl2+, with no shaping at all. and thats off a telstra exchange, would be $20 a month cheaper on an optus one.
We WAS getting ripped off that is correct, IF you wanted ADSL2+ here the cheapest was $90 a month for 25GB, same as Internode at the time. Now iam on (since May last yr) ADSL2+ $60 a month, for 50GB, $20 land line fee. Internode has $60 for 60GB or $90 for 200GB (last time i checked)
i just checked Telstra's plans and im on the one just below yours but im paying $10 more a month, might have to give them a ring about that. hmmm
i'm with dodo, not telstra.
O my bad, well there the same then. I just checked mine and its right, cost $10 because i dont have my mobile through them as well.
Glad to hear its getting a bit better down under. I also know other areas have it worse, with no broadband or rediculously priced broadband. But I dont want it to get worse than it is in ontario. There are areas better than ontario now, dont complain about it really.
I am with Bell/Sympatico got 7MB/s connection & 60GB cap a month for $39.95/month (1 year contract)
I hope that doesn't change any time soon unless they want to give me more speed or bandwidth for the same price...
I have 100/20something included in my rent. Often I'm above that. Sometimes I love living in sweden.
But I read about it on arstechnica. Sucks. I have a feeling most nations will do the same in the future tho.
WTF 100/20 INCLUDED IN RENT WTF WTF WTF
let's all move to sweden and make TPU-ville and be super computer nerds and dominate the world with our internet speeds
seriously that is awesome though
so tony clement said if the crtc dident rethink or change the ruling that cabinet would reverse it.
Indeed he did. I hope it goes well for us, at the very least stop the monopolisation over the sub ISPs of Bell. But it would be nice if they could ban UBB all together.
god this was a close one...
Bell again bell bell bell bell... omg i hate bell! got rid of them all together and they are trying to hunt us back !
but we got our ass saved last minute
hehe anyways i am with videotron 60Mbits/3Mbits caped at 160GB + 30GB (extra 12.95) for 190GB per month at 90$ i need my monthly 200GB LOL (i don't want cabled tv) double suck it bell!
90$ a month O.O
I paid 10$ for 4 months of Fibe 16 with 90GB cap, I always put 5$/month for 40GB extra, and occasional an extra 5$ for 80GB more (170 total). Of course this was a special but still lol. I'm happy with my bell
Videotron's middle usage is so stupid and expensive though
Also, If I go over with Bell, it's 2.50$ per GB (instead of Videotron's 8$) and a max of 30$ (instead of Videotron's unlimited unless you take the 8Mbps line, where its 60$ max)
Isn't 60/3 Videotron 83$ + 13$ of 30GB = 96$ + 14% tax = ~110$/month?
