Bell Sympatico Traffic Shaping

Bell Sympatico is now admitting to traffic shaping during peak usage periods:

“During peak periods of Internet usage, Internet Traffic Management is used to balance bandwidth fairly between P2P file sharing and other applications so that all customers receive fair use of the network”.

  1. I pay for a connection that says it is 325kb/s download. Why are they shaping it to LESS than what I am paying for? This constitutes theft! I want what I’m paying for. If they give me 1/3rd what I pay for, then I want to pay 1/3 what I’m paying now.

    Anyone interested in participating in a class action suit? Email me. A dozen people is more than enough to get the ball rolling.
