Bandwidth issues are only the tip of the iceburg.  Monthly download caps will prevent this from being a viable service.  American's have it easy with their 250GB/month caps... here in Ontario, my cap is 60GB/month.

This will be great as long as the infrastructure can keep up with the demand, I don't know how many times I've tried watching HD on youtube just to keep getting the Buffering crap when I have a steady 6 Mbit connection. Granted it is a small price to pay for the HD, but it's kind of annoying -_-

Try DSL if you think you have it bad. I think all this streaming stuff will fail the connection system in USA is the worst.

Actually I am on DSL, but I'm lucky enough to have great lines and live pretty close to the CO.

My problem with my DSL (AT&T) is it drops out momentarily and if i am in the middle of a movie i loose the stream i have to start all over. Until they find a better delivery system i am out.
