"In a decision that clarifies its approach to the
practice known as traffic shaping, the Canadian Radio-television
and Telecommunications Commission said Wednesday that companies
such as Bell Canada, (BCE-T25.45-0.10-0.39%) Rogers Communications
Inc. (RCI.B-T28.89-0.33-1.13%) and Telus Corp.
(T-T33.07-0.30-0.90%) should do everything they can to expand
"But if they have to slow down or "throttle" some kinds of
Internet traffic – such as downloads of large video or movie
files – during high traffic periods, they can do so."
