This company needs to die a quick horrible death

And I suspect it will from consumer outrage.

It's modifying packets of customers and injecting information into it.

I'm sure Laura Chappell would have a field day if her ISP started
modifying packets like that.

Think about it. Any hop anywhere along the line on the internet between
you and the destination could insert code, advertisements, malicious
code etc and there's nothing you can do about it.

Apparently you didn't make the connection with my comment and the fact
that this is a Canadian ISP, eh?

No I did, but it doesn't really matter. I mean this stuff has been
possible all along. If it wasn't you wouldn't be able to have fun by
setting up open wifi's and doing fun things to peoples content as it
passes through your access point that they leech off of.

But for an ISP to set a precedent and do it... that's ugly. The
question of course is what next? .... waits for the first lawsuit shoe
to drop.
