Tell CRTC to Reverse UBB

The CRTC is soliciting input from Canadians on anti-competitive Usage Based Billing practices by Bell, Rogers, and other incumbent ISPs.  The Open Media group has a convenient online form letter that you can submit to the CRTC.

Go the Open Media page and let your voice be heard by the CRTC!

When I wrote that "dumb is the new smart" in December, predicting that consumers would demand dumb pipes, it was before the FCC ruling on the merger of Comcast & NBC and the CRTC 2011-44 decision.

That CRTC ruling and subsequent public uproar has brought the issue to a head faster than I imagined.  Alas it seems that big ISPs like Bell and Rogers don't get it yet, but a lot of Canadians seem to think that dumb pipes are a smart choice. Yay! They're demanding it loudly, even if the big incumbent ISPs were too slow to see it coming.
