HiSciFi – Stephen Anderson on the Future of Internet Billing in Canada + Antimatter


This week we bring you the special interview with Stephen Anderson, National Coordinator and one of the founders of Open Media. Currently, Open Media is running a petition after recent interludes that wireless ISPs will implement a different billing scheme, one that may change the face of business, enterpreneurialism, online experimentation and most importantly, the state of our bills at the end of every month.

According to Open Media: “Bell Canada and other big telecom companies can now freely impose usage-based billing on independent Internet Service Providers (indie ISPs) and YOU.

This means we’re looking at a future where ISPs will charge per byte, the way they do with smart phones. If we allow this to happen Canadians will have no choice but to pay more for less Internet. Big Telecom companies are obviously trying to gouge consumers, control the Internet market, and ensure that consumers continue to subscribe to their television services.”

The petition details can be found HERE.

We also discuss the latest from CERN, namely the final confirmation on capture of sought-after Antimatter particles. Not only is this monumental for theoretical physics, as we finally have confirmation that anti-matter exists, but may also provide us with insights on how to generate new energy sources, pointing to practical uses of this research.
