No, it's not, but a 7.99 a month it's the best in terms of price, well... now it's not an option.
As for throtling, look at Videotron, one of Canada's top providers that goes unmentioned in that article - [videotron.com...]
Notice how 1 movie per day from Netflix would put you over even the most expensive plan ($82.95 a month!)?
As for throttling, look at that link and notice how they magically can increase everyone's speed overnight, as of Feb 1st. They also don't even need to make any residential changes to move you from a 1MBS plan to a 60MPS plan so it's purely throttling, or throttle removal, that you pay for.
What a scam. What do they do with all the unused Gigs they sold but didn't get used? Bonuses for execs.
