Canadian Internet Use To Cost More

According to CBC News, Surfing the internet is about to become a little more expensive for many Canadians as Shaw and Primus have announced plans to join Bell & Rogers in imposing new fees and caps on internet usage.  Customers who download a lot of data will begin seeing higher fees beginning Feb. 1.  Primus rents bandwidth on Bell’s networks and said Bell is inflating the costs for everyone, including them.  “It’s not meant to recover costs.  In fact these charges that Bell has levied are many, many, many times what it costs to actually deliver it.'”
