I wonder if this hidden cost is related to the Bill that was activated as of Jan 2 due to copyright protection. Don't you find it a coincidence that the price increase occurred a few days after this bill was activated. Meaning, that Shaw will now be sending notices to people that violate the Copyright Laws such as downloading/uploading illegal files.
So Shaw, here is the question, will you be giving out IP addresses and contact information of people that are doing this without a court order? or what? I'm sure that i am not the only one who will be asking this. Not that i download any illegal content, but its all over the news, and it is pretty coincidental the price increase takes affect 3-4 days after this bill was introduced.
