Canada Established Data Caps For All Subscribers

CRTC (Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission) recently approved the request of Bell Canada to introduce so called “usage-based” billing for their Gateway Access Services users, which means that the subscribers of the smaller Internet service providers won’t most likely enjoy unlimited broadband any longer.The subscribers are supposed to face monthly data caps in three months time, which the Commission believes is a reasonable implementation period.

It was back this spring that the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission approved Bell Canada’s intention to implement the ITMP (Internet traffic management practice), which is actually a usage-based billing, for its subscribers. Soon thereafter, Bell Canada petitioned the Commission to allow it to expand this practice to cover its Gateway Access Services consumers, too. And that the CRTC approved as well. In fact, this means that the subscribers of the smaller broadband providers will likely be unable to enjoy unlimited broadband anymore.

In its turn, the CNOC (Canadian Network Operators Consortium) voiced its disappointment with such decision, claiming that the CRTC failed to realize the harm to both subscribers and competitive service providers that would occur thanks to changes it allowed for Bell’s suggested usage-based billing practice.

William Sandiford, the President of the Canadian Network Operators Consortium, admitted that such CRTC’s decisions had made it extremely difficult for independent ISPs and technology solution providers to go on with innovations and providing various services to their customers at affordable prices.

Gateway Access Services broadband providers are expected to now have a hard time attempting to introduce innovative services to subscribers because they will fall under the Bell Canada’s usage-based billing criteria. In its turn, this would mean less innovation for the subscribers.

Matt Stein, Vice-President of Corporate Communication for Canadian Network Operators Consortium, added that demanding competitive ISPs to mirror Bell’s billing plans and prices will also erase competitive choice from the market. This, of course, would be done to the detriment of subscribers. CRTC gave Bell 3 months to fully implement the ruling.

SnakeyB avatarThanks SaM,
I happen to fall under this new ruling, anyone have more info on new price/usage? Of course Bell is being tight lipped on upcoming details.
In Canada any DSL customer has to use Bell lines even though the service provider could be a third party such as mine.

hoddi1 avatarJust what Bell wants less subscribers from the small guys.
I guess the little ISP's will see a lot of loss in the future.

DEMONLORD avatarserious, this is pathetic of what these internet companies are doing now. the people dont even have to do nothing. the network is all computer driven. they just have to sit back and make sure nothing fails. money hungry low lifes are what they are. 60 gb can be used in one day. i had a cable internet like that before. had almost 100 dollar overage charges a month. got ride of them quick. some people do not understand the internet.

SnakeyB avatarWell, I just deleted half my low seeding torrents, and will have to wait for cable. At least I have a huge buffer of seed/leech ratio so I don't feel bad about becoming a leecher for a few weeks. Lets see how fast the cable companies start implementing data caps on there lines also.
Any one on the U.S. border want to build a smuggling tunnel into Canada and fill it with your nice fast internet cables? :D
