This, unfortunately. And given the prevalence of cell phones (more per household than computers/laptops these days), it will likely be cell companies tryiing to flaunt their 5G+ internet service packages as “all purpose.” And that scares the hell out of us here in Canada. The only 3 mobile companies are taking us to the f#cking cleaners just on cell phone service fees. A jump to include their internet as an an inclusive internet service would probably double or triple their rates!

As a point of reference, my wife and I pay $160/month for 2 lines with a shared 5GB/month data allowance.Yes, there are cheaper plans with different companies, but they all have terrible service (customer AND/OR technical). Also, not much cheaper to make up that difference in quality service.
