Superfluous Matter
UBB Summary

My previous post on UBB was a little rambly so I'd like to take a moment to restate my views in a more succinct manner.

I find nothing inherently wrong with the idea of paying for Internet access based on the amount of bandwidth you consume. My problem is that the CRTC is allowing major telecoms to dictate policy on how Canadian consumers should be billed for Internet usage. Major telecoms whose primary revenue streams will soon be destroyed by the Internet, the thing they are trying to alter policy on.

I'm actually a bit disappointed that the national debate seems to just be centred around the UBB stuff and not around the larger issue of the sorry state of telecommunications in Canada in general.
