Bell Canada to Stop Throttling Your P2P Traffic

For all of you Canadians on Bell Canada Internet, you will no longer have your P2P traffic throttled by the company. Beginning March 1st, both residential and business customers will no longer be subject to internet throttlingآ…..and that’s the good news. Of course there is always the flip side to good news and that would be you will probably be paying more for the privilege as soon as Bell Canada sets up a billing system on a per usage basis.

Bell points out that improvements to its network and the proliferation of video streaming mean that the more nefarious traffic just isn't denting its capacity like it used to.
