Bell withdraws proposal on usage-based Internet billing

Bell Canada is offering a compromise to defuse a controversy over how smaller Internet service providers charge their high-usage customers. Bell says it is willing to let the ISPs decide how to bill their customers, so long as the ISPs pay for overruns at the wholesale level. The issue is under review by the CRTC. The CRTC originally decided Internet wholesalers would be forced to charge customers that use excessive amount of network capacity. That decision created a uproar after the smaller Internet providers argued the policy would make it impossible for them to compete.
