Streeters: Metering The Internet

Earlier this week, the CRTC made a rather unpopular decision to let Canada’s telecom giants put an even bigger squeeze on your wallet than they already do. Bell, Shaw and the like will now be able to meter your internet usage, and ding you should you go over your bandwidth cap in any given month.

With that in mind, I took to the streets to find out what Vancouverites thought of the decision. Unsurprisingly, the response was largely negative.

Well, one lady liked the idea. Then again, she was hoping it would stop the robot computers. Doesn’t she know? You can not stop them. You can only hope to contain them.
