Added Comment: As we slide faster and faster into a virtual ELITE DICTATORSHIP via REGULATIONS - wherein a small handful of wealthy billionaires who own and control a handful of monolithic, monopoly Corporations, and have hijacked the halls of Governance, controlling and dictating the terms of life for citizens on every level - the avenues of open communication are rapidly being closed down and vanishing, incrementally implemented.
It seems that those who own the GOLD, make the RULES -
and the rest of us will choke and suffocate under them.
The internet is like a highway - to be used by ALL.
A Democratic and Civil society cannot afford to have it controlled by CORPORATE FOXES erecting "TOLLGATES" and "CHECKPOINTS".
Stop The Meter On Your Internet Use
The CRTC just decided to let your Internet Service Provider put a meter on the Internet!
Bell Canada and other big telecom companies can now freely impose usage-based billing on independent Internet Service Providers (indie ISPs) and YOU. Big Telecom companies are obviously trying to gouge consumers, control the Internet market, and ensure that consumers continue to subscribe to their television services.
This means we're looking at a future where 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 more for less Internet.
This will crush innovative services, Canada's digital competitiveness, and your wallet.
We need to stand up for the Internet.
