Basically everything is moving towards higher data usage (streaming 1080p videos, cloud computing etc) and yet it seems that almost everywhere flatrates are being scrapped and people start being charged based on how much data they use. Just the other week there was a ruling in Canada regarding net neutrality and now they can charge per GB as well: http://www.cbc.ca/technology/story/2...ty-ruling.html

Just to give a taste of how that would look like:
Shaw (cap between 15-350GB/month, priced between $25-150/month & and between $1-2 per additional GB)
http://www.shaw.ca/en-ca/ProductsServices/Internet/
Bell Canada
Cap between 2-75GB/month, priced between $22-53/month in a bundle (with other services from them)

Thank God my ISP hasn't started enforcing any of the caps they implemented, I can still download a couple hundred GB per month and only pay $28/month although my ISP leases the infrastructure from Bell.

Just look at Germany, 29.99 EUR/month for VoiP+internet, both including flatrates. Speed at 16,000 kbit/s, for 5 EUR more you get 50,000 kbit/s...that's what we need.

Its not that bad, seriously.

Im on a $129 p/m 1 TB + phone (unlimited mobile and national calls, 20/2 speeds) and it still works pretty damn good for me.

I doubt they would charge a ridiculous price.
Yeah, won't be taking any advice on internet regulations from Australia (or China). Thanks anyways.

Come off it. The filter has been scrapped.

24mbps/200GB for $60 a month isn't bad. You can get unlimited 24mbps for $10 more, with no data caps or speed restrictions.

Yeah, the Australian, state, and territory governments are still censoring the internet in Australia. The types of censorship found down under are not acceptable to most Americans. We're not that complacent.

Okay, decent price. Irrelevant but it seems like a good deal. I wouldn't trade free speech even for free 1GBps up and down.

I think we need a reset button for the government and start over.

Tier based pricing seriously wth is that all about. You know they make plenty as it is. What does the isp actually provide? The provide a connection. Most isp's are our local cable company so the cost of the wires and maintenance of them is already being paid for by the cable subscribers. So the only real part that the cable company has to pay for is the data center routers to provide the service. Their is no need to charge more other than the fact they are wanting to get greedy.

I have seen some on here try to compare it to cable and how they charge for packages and premium channels. THat is totally different than the internet. Cable companies pay the networks for the connection to their broadcast. They pass that on. The same is not true for the internet. No internet site charges the isp a fee to access the site.

The problem is most Americans now fear the government, and will not do anything no matter how much their rights are tread upon.

Do you know what the hardest thing to overcome was in WWII? The citizens in Europe who sat back and did nothing as everything fell apart around them.

WHY CAN'T WE HAVE INTERNET AT A FAIR PRICE

Seriously, this pisses me off so much. I pay $25 a month on a promo right now for 12/2 internet. That is so much crap. In three months, I'm going to be paying $49.99 for the same crappy 12/2 internet from Crapcast.

THAT IS GARBAGE.

So, here we have an issue. Why can't we make it so the internet can only be charged for the following things:

1) Service speed per month (equal for all sites)
2) Service capacity per month

Easy, right? They charge us an amount for how fast we get our internet then how much of it we get per month. That should be so simple! Yet we get gouged already, I fear I won't be able to pay for internet if the prices go up anymore!

Nothing is being censored. You don't live here, you wouldn't know.

"Free Speech!" Ha! "Hey everybody, I think hitler had the right idea!"

Nothing is free, our rights are being eroded away slowly, so the sheep don't notice.

Now is the time to mention everyone with a social security number has no rights, because getting one makes you a public servant. Read the rules/whatever you sign and see for yourself.

Back on topic: ISP's will find ways around these rules.
