Surprised.

I really thought that the CRTC would vote against Bell Canada.

Totally sucks for Canadians.

Re: Get Rid Of The CRTC

But as most people on here said when I suggested that--it costs toooo much to build your own network out. blah blah blah.

edit add: and the ISPs should be able to use the Bell network to deliver ISP services.

It's time to give the boot to the Chairman of the Board at the CRTC and reinstate an honest person who isn't corrupted by the Government. I elect Michael Geist as Chair of the Board.

Re: Surprised.

Luckily for you, you live two countries south, just south of the USA, in Kendall.

I'm not surprised at all. CRTC = Canadian Roadblock to Telecommunications Competition.

Well, strictly speaking, if Bell Canada is applying "management" to all traffic, then it's not discriminatory. But that's a very strict view of "discriminatory" - it ignores the effective consequences of the action. It appears that the CRTC's chosen to take the exceedingnly strict view - "why" is open for debate.

Re: Surprised.

It's true that it may not be 'discriminatory'- so long as it does apply to, as you say, all traffic. It's probably a violation of their contract with the wholesale purchasers, though.

Re: Surprised.

You can read here all the reasons the CRTC decided as they did. It lays out why the CRTC disagreed with CAIP's contentions that Bell was violating tariff agreements and contractual terms:

Then again, having worked for Bell Atlantic, there's enough internal bookkeeping tricks that equal application is pretty much meaningless.
