Online movie and TV streaming services increases Canadian consumers' broadband data usage, an online media study conducted by US investment bank Credit Suisse has found. Released this week, the study was conducted to assess the impact of online video from non-cable or telco services, such as Netflix, on broadband consumption-based pricing. Unlike Canada, the United States doesn’t have consumption-based pricing, but several American companies are considering implementing it. The study tested Netflix Canada’s streaming service for one month over a Rogers Communications Inc. connection and found that users increased their data usage by up to 20 GBs for the month. Based on Rogers' data pricing structure this resulted in a $12 per month increase in broadband costs for the study's test home.
