This is a corporate oligarchy in action. In a real market, some company or group of companies would try this 250 GB / month cap crap, and some other company would say, "This is Bullshit, I can start my own company and deliver unlimited BW for the same price, undercut these bastards, and make a killing." That would keep everyone honest. But in Canada, there is often one or two ISPs, so they know they can announce this and the other companies will follow suit. You can't just go out and start a new ISP, the infrastructure costs are prohibitive. Thus the need for government regulation.
Also, when a municipality tries to install it's own wifi, then the big ISPs claim foul: "That's not free market principles!" The fucking media then fails to point out the fact that there is no free market due to there only being one or two players that can provide the service.
NETFLIX IS TOTALLY CORRECT HERE. And the only way out is heavy gov't regulation to keep the ISPs from pulling shit like this.
I'm a smoldering volcano of virility. At least, that's what I tell myself.
