Wish I could!  From you email address, I presume 
you're in Canada, too?  For anyone else following 
along, Canada has a handful of major 
providers--all of whom offer packages with 
miserably small caps for relatively high prices. 
Plus I've had this email address for 15+ years 
and it would be a pain to find and update all the 
places I've used it.

Nonetheless, I did upgrade our internet service 
this week.  An extra $20 a month but it more than 
doubled our GB cap.  Hopefully that will hold us 
until I can send them off to school.  (Whereupon 
I'll commiserate with them about the high cost of 
internet service and try not to smirk!  ;)
