Good Day Readers:

This e-mail had a little extra meaning for us. Our latest Shaw Cable invoice increased by $5.40 monthly. Unable to figure out where the difference was we called the friendly SC lady who advised the previous invoice made mention of the additional $ (the 40 cents is tax). Unfortunately, we retained only the payment confirmation portion of the invoice so assume it appeared elsewhere. Must have been in small print because we missed it.

We don't know how many customers Shaw has but that must represent a tidy sum.

Sincerely,
Clare L. Pieuk

Stop Big Telecom from putting a pay-meter on your Internet before it's too late.

We are writing you about a critical issue we know you’ll want to be aware of. Big phone and cable companies want to put a pay meter on your Internet use. If they succeed, we’re looking at a future where big telecom companies will charge per byte for Internet use, the way they do with smart phones. You will have no choice but to pay MUCH more for less Internet.

Stop the (pay) meter on your Internet. Please sign the petition now.

Big phone and cable companies are obviously trying to gouge Canadians, make the Internet more expensive, and ensure that we continue to subscribe to their television services.

If they succeed in adding these new expensive usage fees it will crush innovative services, Canada's digital competitiveness, social progress, and your wallet.

Regulators are examining metered billing right now.

We urgently need to send a clear message to decision makers that we refuse to be gouged by big phone and cable companies. Enough is enough.
