CRTC to debate traffic throttling

Canada’s telecommunications watchdog will set its sights this week on a controversial Bell Canada policy that reduces customers’ connection speeds.

The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission will begin deliberations tomorrow to determine if Bell’s “bandwidth throttling” should stop immediately until government policy is set.

Bell’s practice has upset the Canadian Association of Internet Providers. The 50 association members lease portions of Bell’s network to deliver high-speed Internet services, and they contend that Bell’s actions have led to unacceptably slow connections for their customers. Many pay as much as $50 a month for the fastest Internet subscription available. (link)
