I'm surprised at being the first time i'm hearing about this. Usually I tend to follow-up on a lot of whats going on in terms of internet. But Light is correct, Canada has been using this model for quite some time now. However here in America, it makes me a little uncomfortable knowing we do have monopolies and it's a complete corporate takeover with the media companies pushing congress.
Though less on the politics side, the internet is starting to get a lot of attention from companies that weren't focused on it to begin with. Usually companies like Charter, Comcast, and Time Warner tend to make business models revolving around the same usage plan for the past decade here in America. Problem is that it's going to be easily abused being in America and all. The regulations tend to be pushed onto the consumers rather than the ISP's at this point. Maybe i'm just being superficial or skeptical about all of this but I do worry sometimes, as companies are out to make a profit at the endgame. The scarier part is we're at a day and age where mediocrity is acceptable and it wont take long for things to get out of hand if i'm right on the above ^ account.
