“More Bandwidth is being used up… …this causes congestion.”
“The average user uses 15.5 gigabits, and therefore most users…”
“According to the information provided by Bell Canada, Canadians on average use 15.4GB per month”.
Why am I the average user? Why should I be PENALIZED for bandwidth others pay for but don’t use?
“Ordinary internet users should not be made to pay for the bandwidth used up by high usage customers”
“[We Want] Small IPs retain maximum flexibility and a key source of innovation for the industry”
“We did it because of Bell… …because of course it was Bell who wanted the delay…”
Fucking puppets of Bell.
“We realize the heavy users are being subsidized by the small users”
“Usage is not unlimited, you have a cap and you can’t go over without paying extra.”
“I don’t see why the general, ordinary user should subsidize the heavy user”
YOU ALREADY DO PAY MORE FOR UNLIMITED. IF YOUR USING UNDER 15GB, DON’T BUY A 60GB PLAN PERHAPS? DO YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT SUBSIDIZING IS? ITS NOT MAKING EVERYONE PAY MORE FOR LESS. WHY DOESN’T HE UNDERSTAND THIS.
“We are the first country in leading network neutrality, something others are copying across the world.”
“IPTV is really not part of the internet service, it is a seperate service, you do not get an IPTV through the internet.”
Are you serious? I thought he began trolling at this point.
“How many people will this hit? The heavy users. How many people will this hit? I don’t know, I don’t have the figures. You should ask Teksavvy, Teksavvy has the figures. You should ask this company, what percentage of your consumers will be hit by this?”
Shots fired? How the hell do they not know how many people will be affected in a decision affecting 9 million users?
“It’s just the minority we’re talking about, the 6%, only 500 000 people…”
“If you don’t have high speed internet, this has no impact on you whatsoever.”
“The explosion of use on the internet, and the increasing use of it for video, makes it obvious I think to everybody that usage is increasing phenomenally. Is the capacity increasing at the same rate? That’s what we’re asking.”
How do you combat limited capacity? BY RESTRICTING IT TO EVERYONE IN EXCHANGE FOR MONEY OF COURSE. Also, this was not what you were asking.
“I’m quite sure every ISP in Canada has packages for light, medium and heavy usage.”
Yes, they do. Now why do these need to be reduced and taxed to subsidize those who have light usage but pay for medium or heavy usage regardless?
“Well, healthcare is not residential, so this would have no affect on it.”
after lady spends a minute explaining how doctors use the internet to prescribe and access medical records
“Well, the usage of Skype will have no effect on the 20GB cap. The cap comes in when you do video, HEAVY video, or you play three dimensional games”
Millions of MapleStory players just sighed in relief. SMH.
Brian Masse + Peter Braid and two of the ladies I unfortunately didn’t catch the name of at the end laid smackdown in second half, thank god. Just posted some quotes that irritated me, or of note for those who missed em.
