Thanks to the duopoly of Rogers and Bell, the CRTC has allowed usage based billing to kick in (link to the official decision).
The first casualty? The refuge of choice, Teksavvy, had to cut their unlimited DSL plans down to a 25GB cap, or face what I presume would be financial disaster. I saw the news yesterday, and hopped onto their DSL service offerings page to confirm the news.
For now, the Teksavvy cable internet service retains the higher 200GB cap - and an option for unlimited service too.
Hopefully they don't lose that option as these shenanigans unfold. More detailed coverage of this gong show is available on stopthecap.com.
It's sad that this slow-moving train wreck has been on the radar of techies for well over a year, but this was still allowed to go through.
I predict this'll become a toxic political football for any politician foolhardy enough to support.
Edit: oh look, Youmano, based in Montreal, seems to be thumbing their nose at the CRTC. Let's hope they don't change things as well.
