This only affected DSL, as Bell only offers DSL, cable and satelite wer not affected.

In fact, the CRTC decision is expected to be overturned:

Primus, my last ISP already scrapped the new usage based rates, but I left them and went to cable. 15 mb down, 1 mb up, unlimited usage for $55/month.
Never saw speeds like this. It's at least 3 times faster, no throttling.

At first I thought I was being seriously throttled, I placed my cursor over the utorrent balloon on the task tray-this way it shows the down and up speeds- and saw 1.3 something down, but didn't realize it was 1.3 mbps not kbps. Never saw anything higher than 500 kbps with Primus.
