Canadian ISPs report on Deep Packet Inspection

As an early submission to the CRTC inquiry due for July, Canadian ISPs have responded on the extent of their DPI deployment - and its all the big boys - i.e. for consumers, almost the lot!

Not surprisingly given the various billing, cybercrime and anti-terrorist legislation requirements already imposed on ISPs, the big incumbents have made the investment decision - just how much that reflects a business case based on charging priority traffic or deflecting Skype and other VOIP services, we will presumably discover in July.

Canada is of course particularly interesting because its the oldest deployer of broadband of any scale, even more so than Korea.

The tables are complied by grad student Chris Parsons - excellent work!
