The CRTC has made a decision that allows for (and in some cases will force the smaller players that buy in bulk from the major carriers to use) metered Internet usage. While this doesn't mean that we will see higher charges tomorrow it does hurt competition which is never a good thing for the consumer. As I am spending more time in the US of late I see the different in pricing between the two market and you have to believe that this is slowing access to the evolution of the Internet in Canada.
So make your voice heard and hopefully if enough join in this decision can be reviewed. Full info on the petition, and more information on this issue can be found at http://openmedia.ca/meter
