Save the Internet!

February 1, 2011 permalink internet meter

Bell Canada is imposing usage fees on the internet. The fee will be $2 per gigabyte. This is small for users loading text, but for users relying on the internet for pictures, and expecially video, this will run into hundreds or even a few thousand dollars a month. Don't use Bell Canada? Too bad. Your smaller ISP has to buy from Bell, so you will be paying anyway. Competition will keep the price down? Not in Canada. There is no real competition.
