It appears that, despite best efforts to eliminate internet throttling once and for all in Canada, the controversial practice continues.
According to tests run at Measurement Lab, certain Canadian telecommunications companies are still throttling to extreme degrees. The nation's largest internet providers slowed down file-sharing traffic in the first quarter of this year, even though they pledged commitments to cease the practice.
Rogers was found to be throttling an astonishing 80% of file-sharing traffic on its network. Bell was not far behind at 77%.

Rogers said it would stop throttling by the end of this year. Bell said it would stop by March 1st of this year; the company recently affirmed this was done on schedule.

While Rogers and Bell are by far the worst offenders, they are not the only. TekSavvy was caught throttling 36% of file-sharing traffic, Shaw with 22%. Telus, the third of the "Big Three," throttled just 2%.
