P2P throttling leading to net neutrality showdown in Canada

Mr. Anderson at ArsTechnica posts another insightful update about Bell Canada's attack on independent ISPs like Wireless Nomad. (quoting our application to the CRTC, nonetheless!)

Want to run a server at home? Have a public-access WiFi node? Send mail through Port 25 to your own server? Run encrypted SSH without taking a 90% speed hit? Use torrents or Limewire at the full speed of the broadband you pay for each month?

Then you'd better not get a Bell Canada internet account... and better hope that the CRTC takes action on this soon, and puts a quick end to Bell's attempt to eliminate any competition in the form of the terms of service available to Canadian internet subscribers.
