Recently, I rid myself of my Bell Sympatico account. Their policies, traffic shaping included, finally bothered me enough to switch ISPs. This time, I decided to go with an ISP with policies that I could support: the NCF. They provide a decent service, backed by teksavvy with decent policies. Now, much to my frustration, it seems that Bell has found a way to shape traffic through ISPs who don't support their silly practises.
