    Just two things,

    First not every canadian isp added bandwidth caps, only Rogers, Shaw and Bell did. The independent isp providers (which I subscribe to one) had to petition our government not to be forced to add bandwidth caps (which they won).

    Second the quality change is not very noticeable when viewing SD content (which surprised me) 6 feet away. It is a little more noticeable with HD but not having netflix pause several times to catch up is nice. As the writer of the article stated it is completely changeable at anytime.

    @guest: That's your complaint about the article?

    @ Guest. He said "Americans" talking about the citizens of U.S.A. Same as he said Canadians while talking about the citizens of Canada. What else would you prefer him to say? The United Staters? The Americans of the states?

    I think you need to learn reading comprehension before commenting. There's nothing wrong with what he said.
  5. @Guest: So you refer to people in all countries within North America as Americans?

    Cuba is considered part of North America, do you refer to Cubans as Americans? You're confused, maybe take a nap and rest your mind.
