Openmedia.ca needs you to sign their petition to help fight Internet Metering – February 9, 2011 – Cornwall Ontario

Cornwall ON – Openmedia.ca has started a campaign to fight metered internet here in Canada.

The CRTC just announced they will reexamine metered billing practices. They are seeking public input right now! This is a huge opportunity to stop Internet metering, and to ensure Canadians have access to an unlimited Internet.

Please take a moment to send the CRTC a message here: http://openmedia.ca/crtc

OpenMedia.ca asked Canadians to send Ottawa a message about Internet metering, and wow did you ever respond – over 420,000 signed the petition!

The CRTC’s move to review the imposition of billing practices through a public process is in direct response to our petition – they even cited the “public outcry”.

At the same time, we all know a Big Telecom-friendly compromise is being pushed behind closed doors.  To avoid another industry crafted solution we urgently need to send a message to the CRTC HERE.

We must sway the CRTC now to make our previous victories stick. If we don’t convince the CRTC, all could be lost – all Internet users could face a metered Internet and pay up $4 per gigabyte!

We’ve already moved politics in Canada and made it easy for politicians to champion the Internet. Let’s force the CRTC to do the same.

We’ve come this far, let’s not stop now,

My internet bill last month was $300 with Bell. RIDICULOUS. I am 63-years of age, on a pension and live in a rural area. I rely on the internet for messaging, Skyping and e-mails to stay in touch with my family. I just cannot afford this. With Bell, my internet, land line, cell phone and satellite TV cost me in excess of $600 a month, which I am unable to pay. as a result, I must cancel something…..absolutely ridiculous state of affairs.
