Why does Canada have a Internet Bandwidth limit but USA does not?

If you didn't know already about the fixed internet bandwidth limit on Canadian residents. It means every Canada household has a certain bandwidth limit depending on their internet package. If you want more then you must get a more expensive internet package. It's retarded. For example, let's say you have an average internet package that offers 10 mpbs, well you would have like a 65 GB bandwidth per month that you can't go over. If you do go over, you must be a fee of $2/per GB for each GB you go over. I don't mind really as I don't hardcore download nor watch HD videos. However, I do have to keep a eye on the bandwidth often. But the real question is ,why does Canada have to suffer while USA residents get UNLIMITED bandwidth? It doesn't even make any sense. There's more people in USA then in Canada. So if anything, USA should get a bandwidth limit. so wtf? [Edited on 01.05.2013 8:00 PM PST]

Yet our limits are much higher.. and thus.. we never go over them. I think mine is 500gigs?[/quote] Not really. Gaming for me usually is around 20-40Kbits/sec. So that's around 13MB/hour. That's not very much.

  • Lol, not all canadian internet companies have bandwidth limits. Just the big ones do. Look up wightman telecom, cheaper than bell, faster than bell, and no limits.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] DeltaFiveZero Alternatively, Canada's government should stop being a dick and remove the limit. It doesn't actually make any sense. It's just them trying to get cash out of you.[/quote] Not a government thing. The companies do it. Just switch to one of the small, no-name companies. They can give you better prices for the same speed and unlimited bandwith. Just find the right one.

  • 100gb allowance a month and have passed it a few times and had to pay for the extra. What would be an average that some of you use per month? [Edited on 01.05.2013 8:54 PM PST]

  • I don't have one, and I live in Canada. However, the only reason we have it is because we made a deal with Bell before Bandwidth caps were common, and Bell has never made us change it. sucks4u

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] CIint Beastwood Bandwidth limits don't even make sense to me. It's not like it's a non-renewable resource or even tangible for that matter. Unless Canada has very -blam!- infrastructure I don't really get it.[/quote]
