No, there is no law in Canada said ISP can't charge more than 100% of your monthly bill... Some broadband internet ISP like Bell will charge maximum overage fee $80/month even you use unlimited data. Other ISP like Videotron will have no cap on the overage fee charge if you subscribe to faster speed plan. It is up to ISP decide how to charge/cap the data overage fee.
Well, at least you can subscribe to iPad $5 flex data plan now and use unlimited data for 2 months. Since LTE speed is so fast, you can easily use over 1TB if you want. This promotion is good if you subscribe before Aprit 30th and you don't have to pay activation fee. So 2 months of unlimited data LTE speed for only $10.
I read the flex data overage fee charge from Telus website. I don't know how to interpret correctly the term "Data usage is subject to a monthly overage limit of 5 GB."
After $35 5GB flex data, Telus will charge 2˘/MB.
If we use another 5GB of data then overage fee = 2˘/MB * 5 * 1024MB = $102.4
Data usage is subject to a monthly overage limit of 5 GB.
a) Telus charge maximum overage limit of 5GB = $102.4 even we use unlimited data
b) Telus stop your internet after we use max overage limit of 5GB.
I'm currently use the $5 Flex unlimited data for 2 months and Telus not stopping the internet after 10GB, so we can hope they will use a) charge maximum 5GB overage fee = $102.4 even you use unlimited data.
http://www.telusmobility.com/en/ON/i...lan_ipad.shtmlAdditional usage will be charged at 2˘/MB. Cannot combine with any other data plan. Tethering included. Additional data is charged by the MB or GB and is rounded up to the closest KB (1 GB = 1,024 MB; 1 MB = 1,024 KB). Data usage is subject to a monthly overage limit of 5 GB.
