If telus is going to keep not enforcing them, why are they dropping their limits in Feb? Frankly living under a duopoly is lame. Telus and Shaw both suck in different ways. I am currently switching back to shaw because if telus is going to have the same download limits, I may as well get the faster speeds.

It sure would be nice if we had a government that looked out for its citizens. I think they should nationalize the "last mile" and allow for some real competition in the marketplace. As it stands now, there is no way for a newcomer to break into the market because the infrastructure setup costs are way too high. Pipe dream though. The telcom lobbyists would never allow it. They'd start spouting off about Communism or something.
