    I dunno about this, are you sure it’s on the up and up? Duncan Hunter, I wouldn’t trust that guy as far as I could throw him. And he’s my congressman.

  4. It’s legit. See, Net Neutrality is one of those things that cuts across party lines. Nobody but the telcos wants to see the internet sectioned off into walled compounds that can’t talk with one another — or can only at great expense. Google sure doesn’t, and neither does Yahoo.

  5. Stop now today, the unacceptable, misleading Rogers, Bell, Videpotron ISP adds about having the fastest internet connection that do not mention the download cappings now too!!

    Rogers and Bell Sympatico has each announced super fast internet service, Everyone is misleading the customers in Canada, DSL and Cable ISP that they are providing the fastest internet speeds, but there is a catch, this is not their basic common services offered..

    but also that should be available from Rogers even only by the end of the year 2008. More bad news is that it won’t be cheap! Customers can expect to pay about $100 per month plus taxes in order to have the fastest internet connection on their block

    Bell and Rogers present adds are misleading about their speeds which are Not available in most parts of Canada firstly too

    Rogers Cable Communications today announced plans to launch an even faster internet service, which will offer customers the fastest residential service. rogers Yahoo! Hi-Speed Elite will provide a speed of up to 18 megabits per. Rogers Cable announced Elite high speed internet (HSI) service that it says will provide download speeds of up to 18 megabits per second. The company did not announce upload speeds.

    Bell Canada today announced the availability of Sympatico Optimax which promises maximum download speeds of 16 megabits per second (Mbps). Sympatico will offer two levels of service . A 10 Mbps service for $70 per month and a 16 Mps service for $100 per month. Both services will have a 75 GB bandwith cap. The company did not announce download speeds, however, it is expected to be the same as the Sympatico Optimax service in Montreal which has an upload speed of 1 Mbps.

    Do rightfully Make them all more honest, more transparent about the type of services, speeds they do offer now and where as well..

    Bell and Rogers throttles BitTorrent to hell and back. The only workaround is to use port 1720, which is a temporary solution only. Because Rogers throttles BitTorrent and other P2P, and they’re not gonna leave port 1720 unthrottled forever. cap your upload to 75-80% of your actual maximum (in KiB/s)

    Capping: The Criminal Code of Canada’s section 184.2.c.i-ii DOES NOT warrant them to do packet sniffing. It allows them to ONLY ‘sample’ traffic for quality reasons. You need to remember that these rules were drafted to stop people making their own wire taps on phone technology. What the statement is saying is that: If I am a phone tech I am allowed to connect to the line to check for hums/crackels/dead-service and then do my job to fix it. With Internet traffic you may not capture a person’s traffic unless a court order is issued to do so. The subject of traffic shaping is very different…They are looking into packet headers and making changes that are not a privacy issue…
