"WoW! CRTC moves Rogers P2P/gaming file to Enforcement"
David Ellis talks about how ISPs like Rogers are using DPI and throttling as a means to discourage internet use rather than make needed network investments as the age of streaming is quickly becoming a reality.
He speaks about "a report by Multichannel News on the latest Sandvine traffic data – that streaming video is now the primary driver of network capacity requirements, a reflection of the gradual decline of P2P traffic relative to overall consumer traffic on the Internet."
The Sandvine study, the company’s Global Internet Phenomena Report for fall 2011, contains fascinating revelations about just how quickly Internet traffic patterns are changing (pdf here). Two points. First, from a business perspective, the emerging problem for ISPs isn’t congestion of the old-fashioned kind, the one which formed the basis for the CRTC’s ITMP framework. Second, from a technical perspective, traffic flows present new challenges for network engineering in the local access cloud."
