    Just go to the CCTS and get them to put MTS in their place...they just do not like to be questioned or challenged (MTS)....if what you have written is fact the CCTS has the teeth to enforce MTS to follow their own rules.

    Yeah, let us know how that works out.

    They really should be heavily fined for that false advertising.

    I really don't see what the big problem is here. Wind has been advertising unlimited data all along but they throttle after 5GB. MTS advertises unlimited data too but throttles after 15GB.

    Manitobans still have it better than any other province so I can't see a valid complaint here.

    throttled me after 5 GB. (not the advertised 15 GB limit). So much for "acting reasonable" and "in good faith" as stated in their own network usage policy

    When you call something unlimited, and then impose rules about restrictions and usage, you are limiting it.
    The same argument was made back when MTS would advertise free phones, it took years before they were forced to stop what was deemed "misleading advertising".

    It is misleading, and calling it 15gb Internet is still better than everyone else's data plan.

    I'll point out again that it is still "unlimited data", just not at unlimited speed for the whole thing.

    I've also surpassed 5GB month after month and never been throttled.

    I know you are an MTS fan boy, but here, download 80gb with MTS in one month. Then tell me it is unlimited.
    It will be impossible. Why? They have limited your ability to use data by restricting the speed at which you can download.

    Here is a good analogy. I am going to rent you a car, it has unlimited kilometers. After you travel 100kms, the car will no longer travel past 1km per hour. How much unlimited kms do you have now? You pay monthly for this car.

    This is pretty simple math. By reducing the download speed, time will determine the amount of data you can actually download. That, by any definition, is "limiting".

    Nothing to do with being a fanboy. It doesn't say "Unlimited bandwidth & Speed”, it just says "Unlimited". It's up to the consumer to read and understand the terms and conditions which are pretty clear. And with every other data plan out there being advertising in measurements of bandwidth (500GB, 1GB, 3GB, 6GB etc.), I don't know how you can say it's even misleading.

    The only thing I agree with is being throttled at 5GB instead of 15GB as promised. But OP's argument seems to be more focused on being throttled at all. The fact of the matter is that it's a mobile network and there are other uses that need to share that bandwidth with you. It's not really fair to the rest of us if a handful of users are sucking up all the network resources and the poor saps that want to send a simple email can't even get a connection because of it.

    The unfortunate thing is that you don't have a landline alternative. I do feel sorry for you because of that. But if it weren't for that point, I'd have zero sympathy (well, and the 5GB vs. 15GB throttling level).

    In most of my friends and family's experience, Xplorenet's speeds are generally far slower than MTS/Rogers HSPA sticks (only a few times faster than dialup), unless if speeds have seriously improved in the last year and half.

    ... except I would suggest that in your metaphor, the car travels 1500km before being limited. The competitor charges you $1 for every 10km after your first 500km. Which would you prefer?

    My family's right in the middle of a dead zone for them (same with Inetlink), but everywhere 20km in every direction away from us has it. Ah well!
