CRTC releases net neutrality rules a day ahead of the USA — and big surprise, ISPs win, Canadians lose.

The Public Interest Advocacy Centre, a consumer watchdog group, said the CRTC’s framework is a big loss for internet users. The framework is not binding and leaves decisions as to whether economic or technical measures are required up to ISPs.

“It approves all of the throttling practices that ISPs currently engage in. It requires consumers to prove something funny is going on and consumers don’t have the means to figure out what ISPs are doing and they don’t have the resources to bring that to the commission’s attention,” said PIAC counsel John Lawford.


Is it time to dissolve the CRTC? Yes, yes it is…
