Default Usage Based Billing?

Anyone here a fan of paying more to do more online? 'Cuz it's coming to Canada in March, and it's not gonna stop there.

I blame the U.S. Why? I dunno, just because I'm sure somehow this will be blamed on us.

No, they're the good people. Good people are never responsible for anything bad, it's always someone else's fault. Duh.

the internet as we know it is an endangered species. Its simply too good to be true. there is no way the powers that be will allow this type of freedom to continue to exist. It just causes too many problems for the powers

I have reverse usage based billing... as in I pay $60 to use only 5 gigs a month . Welcome to being rural.

Could be worse though, I could have gotten fucked by satellite ISP's. I'm just lucky there's a Verizon tower about a mile from my house.
