The Canadian Press is reporting on a Harris-Decima poll that it says shows that Canadians are supportive of traffic management provided that all users are treated fairly. The survey indicated that Canadians are generally happy with their Internet service. Interestingly, just prior to the release of the survey, one of the people who was called over the weekend (the survey was conducted July 9 – 12th) contacted me to report:
I took a Harris-Decima phone poll over the weekend and their questions about traffic shaping could be roughly summed up as "Did you know that your neighbour's movie downloading is slowing down your Internet?".
This doesn't exactly inspire confidence about some of the poll results.
