And why exactly would they do that? If anything they will leave them as is to collect more revenue or even worse reduce them. Don't forget that the major providers in Canada all have a stake in TV too (cable or satellite). PSN video store, Netflix, Apple TV etc. all have the potential to reduce their TV revenues so they have to collect somewhere else to keep the shareholders happy...With the introduction of PSN video and now netflix, isp's will start to remove their caps entirely. I'd like to see all tv viewing done through the internet - a user pays for only what he wants and will be totally customizable.
But guess who owns the wires into the homes? No matter how you look at it, they can hold our advancement hostage.1. A new major player enter the market who does not own any interest in protecting cable and Sat TV but is totally dependent on keeping the net going forward.
Never gonna happen.2. Industry Canada with the Federal Justice Ministry grow some and trust bust the whole Communication Cartel.
