“It’s a deterrent to Canadian society that exists nowhere else in the world. In Britain, everything is uncapped,” he told the Post. “In the U.S., on Comcast for $45 a month [you get] 300 gigabytes and then [each extra] 10 gigabytes is like a dollar.”
On the future of apps:
"It will be completely compatible to have a Netflix app, to have a Rogers app, to have a movie channel app, to have YouTube as an app," he said.

We learned that the right way is to pay someone to do that instead of trying to do all that ourselves."http://youtu.be/3GJFJgpETyo At 0:29, I'm the guy 2nd from the left.
