CTV News segment about the upcoming overage fees being forced on to wholesale DSL companies. The CRTC is failing to protect consumers from price-gouging even when they use alternate DSL providers like Teksavvy, Acanac, Primus and Caneris.
The real cost per GB of data has been determined to be around $0.01 but Bell wants to charge anywhere from $1.00 to $2.50 per, an outrageous markup.
It would also create a very awkward business situation where customers would be paying 2 companies for 1 service, with Bell taking more in just overage fees than the primary company gets for the entire internet service package (access, tech support, billing, etc). Virtually unheard of in other business sectors.
