Does any one else see see the solutions are there in the way of mesh
networking and peer to peer methods or other technical solutions?
Most providers have an overcharge clause including Telus who did not
generally seem to enforce it much. But when I last looked at those
details the overcharges from caps made downloading with high speed
extreme way more expensive then using a 24/7 dial up connection.

before you get a very large bill in cap over charges. I never understood
how this made any sense to the customer.
Anyone else see the dramatic irony of all of this?
