Canada Requires New Ruling for ISP Downloads

A Canadian regulatory ruling that effectively stops small Internet providers from offering unlimited downloads must be revised, Industry Minister Tony Clement said on the social networking site Twitter. The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission, or CRTC, ruled last week that BCE Inc., the parent of Bell Canada, could charge wholesalers that lease bandwidth on its network on the same usage basis it charges its own customers, minus a 15 percent discount.
