The CRTC just decided to let your Internet Service Provider put a meter on the Internet! You can stop this here: http://www.StopTheMeter.ca

Bell Canada and other big telecom companies can now freely impose usage-based billing on independent Internet Service Providers (indie ISPs) and YOU.

This means we're looking at a future where ISPs will charge per byte, the way they do with smart phones. If we allow this to happen Canadians will have no choice but to pay more for less Internet. Big Telecom companies are obviously trying to gouge consumers, control the Internet market, and ensure that consumers continue to subscribe to their television services.

This will crush innovative services, Canada's digital competitiveness, and your wallet.

We need to stand up for the Internet. Sign the petition at http://www.StopTheMeter.ca
