[OpenMedia][CAN] Bell Backing out of UBB

post #1 of 7

You helped move one of Canada’s largest and most entrenched conglomerates. Yesterday, Bell Canada finally weaseled its way out of its request to impose a punitive pricing model onto its independent competitors. Bell has now put forward a new scheme called “Aggregated Volume Pricing.â€

This is awesome for Canadians everywhere. I'm not sure if this in the right place, or even appropriate as it's country specific, but, I think this is awesome. It's not a perfect fix by any means either, but it's a lot better than we were doing nearly 500,000 signatures ago.

Some more interesting reading for those who are interested:

And if you're Canadian, you should definitely be signing the petition 10 minutes ago.

Harness.

That petition is to allow smaller sub-isp's to avoid charges, bell and rogers can still cap/structure their own services regardless of this ruling.

I do like where they're going with this though

Mind you I didn't put the e-mail letter in the article, I figured MSN did a decent enough job stating the important stuff.

Aw sunova. Sorry. I searched too.

And yes, the petition does exactly that, but it enables indie ISPs to give Canadians fantastic deals on internet without paying ridiculous prices. It eventually trickles down to the end user, and if enough people move to said indie ISPs the large ISPs will have to do something to regain business.

At least it's progress. Hopefully OpenMedia will keep pushing to have UBB completely eradicated.

Such as drop their end user prices 50% for 12 months, accompanied by a heavy marketing campaign, to starve their resellers of customers.

The next step is to allow resellers resell bell's ADSL2+ services and not just the crappy 6mbps basic service.

Funny how Bell is dropping this just when the elections are coming, it all it means though they'll bring this back up later.
