According to this report at CTV BC, both Shaw and Telus will introduce Usage-Based-Billing (UBB) later this year.

The report focused on Shaw based on their quarterly conference call for investors and analysts:
The recording, dated April 13, 2011, outlines a May or June date for clarifying pricing and packaging plans. It is unclear whether those plans are to be made public at that time.

Phone and email requests for comment from Shaw were not returned by Sunday evening.
CTV also contacted Telus for an on-camera interview:
Telus spokesman Shawn Hall told CTV News his company will also be implementing usage-based fees later this year for anyone exceeding their monthly cap.

"It's going to be really customer friendly," he said. "You'd be forgiven for the first month you go over. You'd get lots of warning, lots of notice that you were going over with options of moving to other plans."

Telus says most of its customers use an average 15 gigabytes per month. For about $35 per month, they offer 75 gigabytes – suggesting few people would be affected by the change.

I have created a new thread

http://www.digitalhome.ca/forum/showthread.php?t=139695

to discuss the news that both Shaw and Telus have announced they will re-introduce UBB so lets keep the general discussion in that thread.

Once the actual new plans by Telus, we will create a new thread in this forum to discuss Telus specific implementation.
