A Chance to Lobby Against Usage Based Internet Billing
Internet Service Providers are about to impose usage-based billing on Canadians.
This means ISPs will charge per byte, the way they do with smart phones. If we allow this to happen, Canadians will have no choice but to pay much more, for less Internet. Big Canadian Telecom companies already gouge consumers for cell phone service, now they want to rip us off for our internet use and to to control the Internet market.
These Big Telecom companies are forcing small competing ISPs to adopt the same pricing scheme, so that we have no choice but to pay these punitive fees.
This will crush innovative services, Canada's digital competitiveness, and your wallet.
We urgently need to send a clear message to Ottawa, saying that we won't stand by while some of the most profitable companies in the country indiscriminately add new fees to our Internet bills. Enough is enough.
The Liberals and the NDP have now come out AGAINST Internet metering. We're winning, Canada - now onto the government in power!
Open Media has a petition I urge you to sign it.
