Submission + - CRTC to hold public inquiry on traffic shaping

b0nes writes: "Today, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission on Thursday released a letter addressed to Bell Canada Inc. and the Canadian Association of Internet Providers, which represents 55 smaller ISPs around the nation, requesting comments on a dispute over traffic shaping between the two parties. CAIP in April complained that Bell had extended its traffic shaping — which slows speeds of internet applications such as BitTorrent — to its members, who rent portions of the company's network to provider their own internet services. The hearings open to the public are to be held in the fall, a move that will prompt a raft of submissions and may result in greater regulation of internet access in Canada by the fall. On the same day, it denied an application by the Canadian Association of Internet Providers for a temporary injunction against the practice."
