Usage Based Billing Hearings Started in Canada

Usage Based Billing Hearings Started in Canada

Firstly, it is a kind of surprising that Canada is still discussing Usage Based Billing. Nevertheless, CRTC (the country’s regulator for such industries) is currently holding hearings on Internet service providers calling for Usage Based Billing to be permitted in Canadian market.

The Canadian consumers are concerned that the system in question is just a method to make them pay twice for the same service – they would have to pay first time for the connection, like they are doing now, and pay again later based on how much traffic they would generate. In other words, Usage Based Billing is the way Internet service providers are advocating for in order to get double profits while taking advantage of the non-existent competition. Indeed, currently there are only 3 main broadband providers available in Canada.

Today, three years after the story with Bell Canada and their Usage Based Billing system, the Canadians consider a network neutrality issue. In fact, it seems almost strange that the discussion in question is still taking place, as the country’s government decided six months ago that the CRTC made a mistake when allowed metered bandwidth. Finally, the government reversed the outfit’s decision and blocked the system, but the CRTC decided not to pay attention to the government and go ahead and hold hearings on this matter.

Meanwhile, it turned out that small Internet service providers are very much against the Usage Based Billing. According to the Toronto Star, the smaller broadband providers feel that this push for the policy is just an attempt to drive the competition out of business. Indeed, if they have to use the same policy as the large players that charge additional fees in cases where the retail customers exceed monthly usage caps, they would really be driven out of business.

CRTC chairman claimed at the hearing that the commission is only assessing the wholesale prices paid by independent ISPs for network use, but not retail rates charged to their subscribers. As for Bell, it withdrew its tariff earlier in 2011 and is currently proposing wholesale pricing for Internet service providers, reflecting a flat-rate access fee on speed. The company charges 29 cents per GB for extra traffic needed to accommodate overall usage in a month. Moreover, Bell announced a launch of Internet-Protocol television service which won’t contribute to its network congestion, as it operates over a separate network.

No avataragreed, i'm from canada and i use a smaller isp. i figure there are 2 ways this can go. #1 would be me worrying about this shit and it not happening. #2 would be it actually happening, making the smaller isps nearly pointless for me to use (and clearly more expensive).

so i see it as a loose/loose situation, which the public has little to no control over.

corporation and goverment helping eachother out just sickens me sometimes.

TheMoog avatarThanks Sam.....i feel sorry for you blazedhobo....i dont get a month go by when there is some idiot knocking at my door telling me he can reduce my costs and give me telly with more adverts than programmes in.
In Canada you seem to be hearded to this proposal and if the corps get their way, which they often do, then usage billing will sting big. Rollocks to that.......but sorry i cant help you out blazedhobo, maybe you could move to this wonderful 'free' country......we spend our money on 'Cameras' in this contry....speed...bus lane...traffic lights...anywhere we can put one...we do.....we love England....l.o.l.

No avatarwhy don't they introduce two type of packages. As in our country Pakistan PTCL is charging almost 10$ for 2gb data usage in a month. 2nd package is for downloaders unlimited downloading for monthly 25$ for a speed of 3.1mbps
