Sarandos talked of Canadian ISPs bandwidth limitations, saying "it's almost a human rights violation what they're charging for Internet access in Canada". There are Canadian ISPs with download caps as low as 15GB for a month, with excess billing charges if you burst through the 15GB limit.

 

Sarandos continued, adding "the problem in Canada is... they have almost third-world access to the Internet".
