It has been a tumultuous time for small ISP wholesalers lately. In the past several months, the CRTC has issued rulings that affect the way small Internet wholesalerscan compete against larger incumbents. Some of the decisions favour the small ISPs, such as being able to match bandwidth speeds offered by the big guys, and others have not, such as being forced to adopt a usage-based billing format.

Well, until Thursday. The CRTC's decision to delay the implementation of UBB, pending a review of the whole thing, seems to have given small ISPs a reprieve of sorts. However, judging from Konrad W. von Finckenstein's comments Thursday, ISPs such as Teksavvy -- and their unlimited Internet plans -- are a source of concern for large providers and for the CRTC.

Today, we have a representative of one such small ISP, George Burger of TekSavvy Solutions, who'll be online for an hour to chat with Globe readers about the CRTC's reversal and some of the issues around the UBB debate.
