Well Canada, it looks like we may have done it.  Our government will be reviewing CRTC’s decision that prevents internet providers from offering unlimited bandwidth. 

“I will be reviewing this decision very, very quickly and will be making recommendations very, very shortly,” Tony Clement told reporters today in Ottawa.  Clement also added “The last thing you do, I would argue, is create a situation where only one business model is going to be allowed and therefore choice is going to be taken away from consumers.”

The ruling by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) was due to take effect on March 1 so hopefully a decision will be made prior.

Keep your signatures coming in Canada. Your voice is being heard, loud and clear.

LG G2 Review

I can honestly say that with big surprise to me, it's LG that finally figured out how to merge Android OS and their skin without affecting the drain on battery life. Kudos to LG for a great device, and one that I think will be the new standard for how a smart phone should be.
