|Canadians debating net neutrality in wake of Bell throttling|
|Écrit par Alain Côté|
Ars Technica has an update on "Bell Canada apparently Throttles Wholesalers Without Notice". Concerns are growing in Canada, contrarily to the past years where not much attention was paid to the issue by Canadians.
"Arguments about network neutrality haven't made much headway in Canada (perhaps it's hard to get traction on all that ice?), despite several years of traffic shaping from cable operators like Rogers.
But now that Bell Canada has jumped aboard the P2P throttling dogsled and is mushing ahead with all possible speed, the issue has suddenly become high-profile news, spawning numerous articles in the mainstream press and launching several strenuous protest movements.
It has also led Bell to dig in, arguing that it not only has the right to throttle its own customers and its wholesale buyers, but that the government should butt out of the wholesale line-sharing business altogether."
