Bell Canada and Rogers are still on the World's Top Throttlers List

MLabs, a project "funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation" (see "Syracuse University Research on Deep Packet Inspection" - here), published updated information on ISPs found to be throttling data, through DPI, for BitTorrent files sharing traffic.
".. we show the 10 or 11 ISPs who had the highest percentage of tests that yielded a positive result; that is, a result indicating that DPI was used to throttle or block BitTorrent. If an ISP’s result on the chart is 93%, for example, it means that 93 percent of the tests their users conducted using Glasnost produced a result that shows that the BitTorrent application was singled out and manipulated by the ISP using deep packet inspection technology. The chart shows the two-letter country code and the name of the network operator".
Among the the top 10 throttlers for the first quarter of 2012 are two Canadian operators, who said recently they will stop throttling P2P traffic on March 2012 - will we see them the next time?
  • Bell Canada - see "Bell Canada will Stop Shape "diminishing" P2P Traffic on March 2012" - here 
  • Rogers - see "Rogers Stops DPI/Traffic Management" - here.
