throttling

  1. Wind Mobile
    It took me more than two minutes just to load this forum posting page. That's how bad they throttle it. I have filed a complaint with CCTS. To summarise, at least according to the kid I spoke with, tethering and any downloading (not just p2p) is sufficient reason for mobilicity to throttle or...
  2. Rogers High Speed Internet and Home Phone
    Rogers, one of Canada’s largest Internet providers, has upset many customers with a recent change in their network management systems. Since mid-September both up and downstream BitTorrent traffic has been severely degraded in certain areas, which goes against the company’s network management...
  3. Industry News
    The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) this week introduced a new framework which the federal regulator says will guide Internet service providers (ISPs) in their use of bandwidth throttling practices. To the disappointment of consumers, rather than banning the...
  4. Bell Canada Home Phone and Internet
    Bell Canada Inc. will continue throttling the internet speeds of its smaller competitors for at least another few weeks as the CRTC has again delayed its decision on whether the company has broken the law by doing so. Gee according to the CRTC, "It's a complex issue"
  5. Rogers High Speed Internet and Home Phone
    Globe and Mail and CBC articles. Rogers says its internet interference is necessary, but minimal Rogers explains ‘shaping' policy In a nutshell, Rogers is saying that they do throttle applications and make no bones about it. No discussion on why they have a bandwidth cap then! Interestingly...

    http://www.michaelgeist.ca/content/view/2979/125/ Bell Canada is facing a class-action lawsuit as a result of its Internet access policies, an announcement reveals. A Quebec group called L'Union des consommateurs, along with Bell customer Myrna Raphael, are accusing Bell of false advertising...
  7. Internet, Landline and Wireless Phone
    The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) today rejected a plea from the Canadian Association of Internet Providers' (CAIP) to end Bell Canada's practice of "throttling" its wholesale internet services. This stems over the issue in late March of Bell throttling...
  8. Bell Canada Home Phone and Internet
    On 03 April 2008, the Canadian Association of Internet Providers (CAIP) filed an application with the CRTC in an attempt to force Bell to cease and desist with throttling 3rd party ASDL services using Bell's last mile: 2008-04-03 - #: 8622-C51-200805153 - Canadian Association of Internet...
  9. Internet, Landline and Wireless Phone
    Article on TCP exploitation: The real reason for bandwidth congestion and throttling I guess this could have gone in one of several existing threads, but since it doesn't deal with a specific ISP, and barely discusses net neutrality (ironically, not neutrally ;)), I have posted it as a new...
  10. Bell Canada Home Phone and Internet
    From DSLReports. It originally started when Teksavvy customers complained on the Teksavy support forum about being throttled, despite Teksavvy's policy of not throttling. Teksavvy has arranged a meeting with Bell. Interesting to see what happens.
  11. Shaw High Speed Internet and Home Phone
    Sorry if this has been answered, I tried a bunch of searches with no results. For Shaw, I don't download many torrents, but the ones I do are say 1GB in size. Whereas I used to get upwards of 250kb/sec (high speed) I now get 30kb/second total as most of the rest of you are. Question: If I...
  12. Internet, Landline and Wireless Phone
    In a column written for the Toronto Star a few weeks ago (See http://www.michaelgeist.ca/content/view/2282/159/), communications law expert Michael Geist wrote that Canadian ISPs need to be lot more transparent about the limits they place on downloads from peer-to-peer networks. He fingered...
