UBB NOT Overturned

Posted by Laurel L. Russwurm on February 5, 2011

No Usage Based Billing
Various members of the government have said Usage Based Billing will be overturned.

After the CRTC review.

The CRTC says that Bell has requested an extension for implementation of UBB. Bell? Pardon me?


Bell asked for UBB and has fought for it. Why an extension? Suddenly they don’t want this massive price increase?

What does “Overturn” mean, exactly?

When Tony Clement talks about “overturning” Usage Based Billing, is he talking about overturning the tariff decision:

the details of the cap and bandwidth overcharges?


Is he talking about overturning the CRTC’s May 2010 approval of 3rd Party Billing UBB?

Will they really overturn it?

Particularly now that the Federal court has struck down the Globalive decision?

It’s not over yet.

Regulating Canada into the last century will not help our digital economy survive in this one.
We need to Stop Usage Based Billing before it starts.

If you haven’t already, sign the petition. There are only 14338 signatures.

If you have already signed, who else should you be asking to sign?

That’s easy: anyone who uses the Internet.
Because Usage Based Billing will harm not only Canadians, but our Economy.

You can also call or write your MP, MP postal code look-up

Industry Minister Tony Clement – email:

Prime Minister Stephen Harper – email:

After all, they work for us, don’t they?
