Net Neutrality

Today was the deadline for submissions to the CRTC concerning the Internet neutrality hearings in a few months. Two submissions filed today are worth noting. First there is a report (PDF) which examines how the CRTC bungled the decision to allow Bell to continue throttling bandwidth. The other document (PDF) comes from the Canadian privacy commissioner and details the ramifications of deep packet inspection as it relates to user privacy. Both reports are interesting reads and would be persuasive if the CRTC were impartial. Unfortunately, few people believe that the commission is truly impartial on neutrality as the chairman has worked for both Bell and Rogers.
