I think Geist hit the nail on the head.
Perhaps (definitely not sure) because Bell retail clients have 6Mbps speed and the CRTC may require them to offer wholesales the same speeds offered retail speeds.
ScaryBob did you actually read the article or what Geist said?
nuke12, I'm confused. This is all about Bell not Bell Aliant.
FYI, If I write about Aliant, I always say Bell Aliant or Aliant.
The one thing that was interesting in the letter was this line "As a result, we recommend that you monitor your access to ensure that you can meet the needs of your customers"

I wonder if Bell hopes they have punted a political football to TPIAs.
Probably because they have to get all their new facilities up and running. New Network facilities take time to build and test.
It's a good PR move but not sure if most customers will even notice since most are not big P2P users and many P2P users simply have shifted to off prime to get around the throttling.

I think most customers are far more concerned about their bandwidth cap than they are about bandwidth throttling.
