I was bitching the other day on how you can't get any bandwidth in Canada, and how this would destroy us. Well, the buzz among the brilliant young people (my son :) is that Glob-alive will be offering an unlimited data plan for a reasonable price. This immediately destroys the voice cartel, since you can now use Google talk on a Google phone! These young people are busy organizing the world, and the cartel was severely crimping them.
Right now, all our bandwidth has been crimped to support long-distance charges, which is where they get all their money. For the past 10 years, there has never been a need to charge for long distance, since, once internally digitized, there is no extra cost. Now, everything will be digitized at the input.
I have no love for the cartel, may they rot in hell. Now, on to the other cartels!
