Usage-Based Billing in Canada

silentbrad (1488951) writes "I work at (though not for) a specific Canadian Cable Company and ISP, and have the good fortune of having to use Internet Explorer to visit slashdot six days a week. However, there's a small upside to this: our homepage tries to drive home the awesomeness of the company by providing links to the five most recent (somewhat) reputable articles that mention said company. They also seem to be under the impression that any news is good news, because only one of these five in recent weeks agrees with them about the reasons for UBB. Slashdot has reported on Canada's adoption of usage-based billing before, and now it's starting to get more and more coverage. Two weeks ago, the NDP got upset; now Canadian Business is reporting about the soon to be rising rates, and Netflix is expressing their worries about possible losses and the ridiculous overage fees."
