Usage based billing will be the end of Internet DSL wholesale companies in Canada. Bell raised the idea last year in a response to a CRTC ruling forcing them to allow their wholesalers the same service offering they had. UBB is the end of unlimited flat rate Internet plans for many smaller companies. Bell plans to implement the billing system at the end May this year. So much for competition.
So not only do Bell Sympatico customers have to deal with unnecessary slow Internet due to throttling but monthly access fees will also rise. Oops you went over your monthly cap, that will be an extra $20. Will it be any surprise when BCE’s profit results are up by the end of the year? If only there were another service provider. In Canada there is Rogers and Bell, both which suck balls. (link)
