CRTC reviewing controversial 'zero-rating' in internet plans

CRTC reviewing controversial 'zero-rating' in internet plans - Technology & Science - CBC News: "The CRTC says the issues with Bell and Videotron are different.

"[Bell] had their own app," says Patricia Valladao, a spokeswoman for the CRTC. "Unlimited Music does not promote Videotron's own application, so it's a different situation."

 But some disagree, saying the cases are fundamentally the same.

"In [Videotron's] case they're offering somebody else's content instead of their own, but you know, big deal — it's the same thing. They're exempting their own controlled or friendly data so they can allow users to use that without an effect on caps," says Lawford." 'via Blog this'
