Bell will end bandwidth throttling next March

In a letter sent dated December 19, 2011, Bell Aliant and Bell Canada have informed the CRTC that they’ll stop the practice of Internet Traffic Management Practice (ITMP), commonly known as bandwidth throttling, on March 1st, 2012.

For the past several years, Bell has been slowing down peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing application traffic between 4:30 p.m. and 2 a.m. because these programs were clogging the networks and negatively affecting time sensitive applications.
