Teksavvy Issues Statement

Teksavvy has stated in a recent blog entry that they have received a request for information in regards to 2000 IP addresses.

According to this blog entry, Voltage Pictures LLC intends to file a lawsuit on December 17th, 2012 in order to gain this information from the Chatham, Ontario based internet provider. And many members of the media have speculated that this is related to the illegal downloading of “The Hurt Locker“, an 2008 action film featuring Jeremy Renner and Guy Pearce.

The company claims that it intends to fight for their customer’s privacy. Click here to access the legal documents on this case.

Teksavvy Suspends Usage Based Billing

Teksavvy has decided to suspend their plans to implement usage based billing in response to the customer revolt that resulted in nearly half a million signatures on the openmedia.ca online petition.

Usage based billing was to be implemented at Teksavvy on March 1st, 2011. But the consumer complaints had flooded in so quickly that even Bell has decided to look for alternatives to usage based billing, according to The Wire Report.
