Usage Based Billing on Power Play

I appeared on Power Play with OpenMedia’s Steve Thomson to talk about the CRTC’s ruling on usage-based billing. Sadly, CTV doesn’t make it possible to embed their video clips on other sites. So, if you’re interested, you’ll have to go to their site to see the clip.

Before our segment, Don Martin spoke with CRTC Chairman Konrad von Finckenstein. I noted (though didn’t bring up in my discussion) that Mr. von Finckenstein dodged the question about why the CRTC changed it’s earlier decision on UBB. You can find that exchange beginning at 3:16 in this clip.
