Should Internet access providers be allowed to block or degrade lawful applications or content? The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) is asking that question right now as they study Internet traffic management practices.
Google and a coalition of technologies companies and public interest groups have weighed into this proceeding, urging the CRTC to prohibit application or content based "throttling." Google's submission was one of many formal submissions made in this proceeding.
Now it's your turn to weigh in.
Yesterday the CRTC launched an online public consultation, open until 30 April, to solicit more public input in this proceeding.
Log in to online consultation and have your voice heard on the future of the open Internet in Canada.
