I believe broadband Internet should be considered an essential utility. over the past 10 years I've seen my cable bill nearly double, while at the same time I've been *removing* services to help keep my spending in check. it doesn't seem to matter though, as a $5-10 monthly increases seems to be a regular occurrence on my Shaw bill. I somehow get the impression that even if ala **** TV is introduced and we claw back some of the cable TV charges, Shaw will somehow make-up the losses by bumping up the minimum charge on the Internet portion of our bill. The situation really is laughable. But you can't do without the service nowadays so you just suck it up.
