If that's not considered anti competitive by the CRTC I don't know what will. Like I said before, Bell can burn.
Not quite.... Anti-Competetive would be charging the resellers an access fee which would not allow them to turn profits similar to Bell with similar pricing packages... it wouldn't make sense for Bell to be forced to allow resellers to have a better package than they can offer themselves.

If the resellers want to be able to offer a "better" service than bell does, they'll have to build their own backbone.

What this all comes down to is that the days of unlimited caps are coming to a close, and you can mostly thank the explosion of 24/7 high bandwidth downloading that's been going on for the last year or so.
