So what’s this really about? Bear in mind that Bell Canada and other big telecoms also are invested heavily in an old-fashioned media-delivery model called television. If you now have to pay by the byte to live your version of a rich digital life on the Internet, maybe the hits to your bank account will push you back in front of the television set.
Bell owns a Television distribution thru FibeTV. The current version of Usage-based billing would stop people from using Neflix-type services as an alternative.
