Wow. With that, most Canadians would hit their bandwidth cap in....under seven minutes!

A 7.5GB game would take 60 seconds to download provided Steam's servers could keep up.

$70 a month. (without TV)

That's the same price that I pay for 50Mbps and 400GB Limit. I feel like I'm getting screwed!

Canadians get screwed with Internet and with Cell Phones! Grrr!

Oh shush, I'm in a city of half a million, right beside Toronto, and pay that much for 32/1 and a 150GB cap. (But I agree)

Hopefully this is a sign of things to come. However, in Canada this seems unlikely.

What are the fastest speeds available right now in Canada?

Could have sworn Bell Aliant out here had 150 Mbps down, 30 or 50 Mbps up, for about 150$ a month capless.

My dad pays $40 for 8/1 and 25GB a month... and I'm just in Newmarket... Bell is sodomizing us.
