CRTC rules in favor of Bell, against net neutrality

If you’re wondering who’s side the CRTC is on, it’s not the consumer. The CRTC recently ruled that Bell Sympatico’s throttling practices did not discriminate against the ISP wholesalers. In essence Bell and Rogers are free to do as they please. Many have already voiced their displeasure with the decision. Consumers are lamenting the seemingly attack on their Internet freedoms however the Internet wholesalers are the ones getting screwed here.

See how it normally works is that companies tend to favor the customers who usually have big orders. In this case the guys buying large chunks of Internet time are getting the opposite end of the stick. Thanks for your business, now fuck you!

The CRTC is planning on holding another meeting on general traffic shaping practices in February. I’m sure it will be well attended.
