Liberal MP David McGuinty has introduced the Telecommunications Clarity and Fairness Act, a private members bill that will come as welcome news to every Canadian consumer. The bill would outlaw the much-hated system access fee and require the CRTC to study issues such as how stop providers from locking devices, to provide more accurate information on network speeds, and to implement greater transparency of network management practices on mobile and broadband networks. It also calls on the CRTC to issue a net neutrality report on "network management practices that favour, degrade or prioritize any packet transmitted over a broadband network based on source, ownership, or destination."
