+ - CRTC is Bell puppet

Submitted by McGiraf
McGiraf (196030) writes "Last year, Bell Canada started throttling wholesale customer ISPs without telling them, ensuring that these smaller operators couldn't offer an un-throttled connection to consumers that was better than Bell's throttled Sympatico service. As their back up plan against competitors in case regulators stopped them, Bell Canada started devising a usage-based billing (UBB) system smaller Canadian carriers worried could drive them out of business.

The CRTC continued this trend by today approving Bell's UBB plans. CRTC employees like vice-chairman Leonard Katz, who spent 17 years working for Rogers and 11 for Bell, aren't concerned...for some strange reason.
