Reading Michael Geist’s blog post, Canadian ISPs Fall Short In Meeting Net Neutrality Requirements, this morning I was reminded of the CRTC’s net neutrality decision last year, requiring Canadian ISPs to publish a disclosure of their network management practices.
The point of this publication is to make customers aware of what sort of traffic shaping and bandwidth adjustment practices ISPs might utilize to control access to the internet. For example, Bell limits access to P2P applications such as BitTorrent during certain hours.
I looked through Northwestel’s rather lamentable site this morning (which, it should be noted, features an ever-increasing number of dead links and broken application features–who’s managing that site, anyway? Anybody?) but came up empty handed.
Anyone seen or heard of Northwestel’s network management practices disclosure? They are required to have published it by now, and I’d be interested to read it.
