Throttling customers

bell-cp-4901164.jpgCRTC allows Bell to continue internet throttling

Bell Canada Inc. is not breaking any laws by slowing internet speeds and will be allowed to continue throttling its customers, the CRTC has ruled.

‘…allowed to continue throttling its customers’ is really an unfortunate turn of phrase, don’t you think? Makes it sound even more sinister than it actually is (and the reality is sobering enough).

At least the CRTC is opening a new probe into internet throttling in general. One can only hope the outcome will be more encouraging.
