This says pretty much exactly what I had quoted in the first news
article. To wit:
The Commission notes that wholesale UBB rates were approved for the Bell
companies in Telecom Decision 2010-255
<http://www.crtc.gc.ca/eng/archive/2010/2010-255.htm>, which was issued
on 6 May 2010.
a per-gigabyte (GB) rate for monthly usage generated by the end-user
above the usage threshold (overage), which would be capped;
a per-GB charge for usage in excess of 300 GB monthly for a GAS
ISP's end-user (excessive usage charge) if, and when, the Bell
companies introduce a corresponding charge for their retail
residential Internet service (retail Internet service) customers on
UBB plans at that time.
The Bell companies proposed usage thresholds of 2 GB, 20 GB, and 60
GB for the 512 Kbps, 2 Mbps, and 5 Mbps speed options, respectively.
They proposed to cap the overage charge, which would vary by speed
option, at $22.50 (or 25 percent lower than their retail rate) for
all speed options.
So here we see, the real base cap for a 5-mbit connection should be
60GB, not TS's 25GB. And also, the cap for overage (up to 300GB) is
$22.50, compared to TS's $55 for "Insurance")
