Potentially 4. I graduate at the end of the year, and I just might put more effort into finding a job in Washington or Oregon than anywhere in Canada.

I've been following this for quite some time and the outlook is grim. As a network admin student, I see myself moving elsewhere simply because this will cripple internet related business in our country.

Gotta admit, I'm pretty frightened of paying 1/4 of my living expenses a month for internet...

The telecom companies are relying on the average ignorant consumer to not voice their opinion and reject to such tiered plans. It's our responsibility to put these profit margin hungry cows in their place. Companies like AT&T for example need to stop spending their money on commercials and start laying down some fiber.

Did someone mention that not too long ago, when ADSL2+ connections came out here in Australia, that the normal subscription for something like $60 a month, was that you get 250MB of data for the month, and then your internet is shaped down to 256k/64k speeds after you go over that?

Oh wait, they didn't. We just took it up the ass and kept on walking.
