Well, Canada would not follow that way...

The problem I see is that online services would ultraspeedly feed us, usual consumer, with a truckload of ads while we would be reduced to turtle speed !!!

We need a law to stop, for example, the spyware robots who send our internet preferences to auctions : they do not do that on our phones (my phones are on the canadian list to avoid telemarketting) or TV's, why should we tolerate that on PC, phone or tablet ?

By the way, why should I pay for cloud storage while I can do it by myself and companies are responsible for their own data storages. It is like those add on guarantees we do not need.

I don't want to portray gloom and doom for Canada. But we are rarely immune from the consequences of major decisions to the south of us.

The way they explained it on the CTV National News last night, I get the feeling it will be similar to Satellite and Cable TV. You pay for "data", so you can get access to these sites with that.... oh, you want access to these sites over here??? Well, that will cost you extra. $$$

I also get the feeling, that no matter how much Canada holds onto our Net Neutrality, we will be affected by this US decision. To what end will Donald continue to pad his buddies pockets and call it "freedom" cause Big Brother isn't controlling free enterprise??

"Freedom isn't free, it belongs to you and me.... if you want chip in your buck-o-five, who will?"

I imagine congress might do something. There is overwhelming opposition to this and I can't imagine they'll want to piss off their constituents this badly.

Remember this is American politics and big business. I wonder how many of those congressman are sleeping with Google, Amazon, and Verizon.

They still have to get votes. People are pissed and there are a bunch of lawsuits inbound. This will be an interesting fight.

yep its me just takes a long time to type it out down to 65% lungs now and I think we will have no choice but to pay a crap load of money for what we take for granted now on service providers they will just pass it back to the consumer as always

I'm paying twice what I paid when I was in St. Catharines, so I think I'm paying my share.

I wonder if the fake news, hate, porn, illicit sex markets, and the users of such, have much influence over congress. They might not like being fucked with.

True, but note how much of what we think is Canadian internet content comes from American servers.
The Canadian Internet Registration Authority is trying to fix this.They have bootstrapped several Internet Exchange Points across Canada. IXP’s are essentially a large switch where content providers and Internet Service Providers connect and share (peer) with each other. The IXP’s are run by not for profits. Everyone that connects pays a fee to cover the cost. Content provider networks like Akamai, Limelight, Cloudflare, and others install caching servers so the content is closer to the end user. Most of the small Canadian ISP’s peer at the IXP’s. The big four do not. They only peer in the US so that they can charge small ISP’s a transit fee to get to the US and connect to their network. True net neutrality in Canada would have the big four peer at Canadian IXP’s. This is starting to happen. Telus is participating sort of. Full disclosure, I was on the board of CIRA when they started this project.

How much of an effect will a US decision have on us if the CRTC doesn't allow Canadian ISPs to throttle certain sites and services?
