I don’t mind paying for what I use when it comes to software, web services and data pipes.

It’s really bad news for those that are cutting the cord and streaming/downloading a lot of content.
A friend of mine emailed me the above graphic, which really puts what Canadians are going to be charged per GB into perspective. The $2 per GB is for everything exceeding 25GB per month in some cases, which is more than the cost of some SSDs.
