CBC News reports that Rogers, the second largest ISP in Canada, announced this week that it is lowering its allowed download (http://www.cbc.ca/technology/story/2010/07/22/rogers-download-limits.html) limits. Customers who sign up for Rogers Extreme service after July 21 will get 80GB of monthly bandwidth rather than the 90GB that people who signed up before that date are allowed.

Buyers who opt for the Lite service will get 15GB of bandwidth per month rather than the 25GB offered before. Rogers is offsetting the reduction in monthly allowance for Extreme service customers by upping speeds to 15Mbps from 10Mbps before. The Lite service maintains its existing speed. Users who go over their data allotment for the month are charged an extra $50.
The announcement of reduced data allowances comes only a few days after Netflix announced that it would be entering into the Canadian market with its streaming service.
