Check out Yak, they seem to be running their own gear. They sell a 10mbit service, unlimited for like $36 a month. I'll be calling them today to switch.

It specifically says "no usage based billing" on their site.

yeah for now anyway. If this bill goes through, there will be a čáp as well.

I appreciate this, looks like I may get lucky this time. However it's just a band-aid, I'd much rather the real (bHell/CRTC) problem get addressed... I don't want to jump ship on Teksavvy but I don't really have an option.

I've signed the petition, and when I get home from work I'll put this all over my wall on fbook and coerce some family to sign the petition.

As one of the users being directly targeted by this UBB campaign, I find it extraordinarily frustrating that an organization meant to protect consumers (CRTC) is really there to grant Rogers and Bell every request they come to the table with.

True :/

Found this comment on cbc article interesting:
I just read my notice from my ISP (Teksavvy), about how this will affect my account, and here it goes: effective March 1, 2011, I will continue to pay $31.95+HST, but instead of getting 200GB bandwidth, it will now only include 25GB, that means that as of March, I'll only be getting 12.5% of the bandwidth for the same price. Yes, you read that right, I am losing 87.5% of my services without a cent less on my bill! This is criminal! it's 2011, even youtube has 1080p files which eat bandwidth to no end, and now I will pay one of the highest cost for internet in the World (true), AND only have 25GB available to me? Sure, I can pay for "insurance", which is an extra $14, but that means that I'll be paying $46+HST per month for 145GB, that is crazy! $46+HST for DSL?! Shame on the CRTC!!!! How am I, the consumer, being protected here? And why is it that in Quebec, the rates are different? Why do they get less cuts?

I don't understand why they sell bandwidth in the first place. It's bloody well FREE. It doesn't cost them a single penny to receive data so selling on a per MB basis is pathetic. Nothing should be pro-rataed. Internet Backbone providers should simply charge a flat rate to ISP's who then do what they wish.

God damn I hate the corporate world.

Remember, join any other ISP but Bell/Shaw/Rogers. Support 2nd tier ISPS, otherwise you will only be supporting the problem.

What about maintainance? I would assume that would cost something, but, I see your point otherwise
