Tired of data caps? You have 24 hours to say so on the public record

The CRTC is asking Canadians how we think the Internet should be priced. Join us on the public record in telling them

“You have used 100% of your data. Additional charges will apply.”

Would you believe that line is as Canadian as real cheese curds and ketchup chips?

Canadians face some of the lowest data caps in the world, for the highestfees, yet are some of the most connected citizens in the world.

Help us make rationed Internet a thing of the pastsign our petition now to add your voice to the more than 30,000 Canadians who are tired of data caps.

If you’ve already signed (you Internet hero, you), the next step, is ask your friends on Facebook and Twitter to say publicly they’re tired of data caps.

We have just 24 hours to get your name on the public record. Canada’s telecom decision-makers asked for input from Canadians on how the Internet should be priced, and the deadline for comments is tomorrow.

Your voice, and the voices of thousands of others, will help support our detailed recommendations to the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC). Tomorrow, along with your support, we’ll submit our second detailed report (see our first here) on how data caps hurt all Canadians, slow innovation and create an unfair playing field.

Your support is what will fuel this win. We don’t have back rooms filled with lawyers and lobbyists like Big Telecom has, angling to squeeze every last drop of profit from they can from everyday Canadians.

But if enough of us come together and demand fair prices — prices enjoyed almost everywhere else in the world— we can put an end to data caps.

So, please — take a minute now and sign your name and ask your friends on Facebook and Twitter to stand with us.

Another way you can help us fight for fair prices is donating even a few dollars to OpenMedia today. Even a few dollars will go towards our ongoing fight for an open Internet.
