Submission + - Canadians find traffic shaping reasonable (google.com)

gehrehmee writes: "A recent Canadian Press Harris-Decima poll suggests that "Sixty per cent of survey respondents said they found the practice reasonable as long as customers are treated fairly, while 22 per cent said Internet management is unreasonable regardless." A major Canadian internet and phone service provider Rogers, meanwhile, compared "person-to-person file-sharing to a car that parks in one lane of a busy highway at all times of the day or night, clogging the roadways for everyone unless someone takes action". Is there a lack of education about these issues, and the long term effects of traffic shaping on free communication? Or are net-neutrality advocates just out of touch?"
