Canadian TV to Adopt DRM-Free BitTorrents
Sadly, that's categorically incorrect. As a western-Canadian Shaw customer I can confidently assert that despite my connection's maximum speed of 1Mb/sec (tested using speed tests and some fast external servers) bittorrent, even on well-seeded (>2000 seeds) torrents _never_ exceeds 300k/sec. I can and do have dozens of torrents running, and no matter how many individual ones there are they don't top 300k/sec between them.
A less anecdotal bit of supporting evidence is that, after an odyssey with technical support that got me as far as someone claiming to be one of Shaw's network engineers, Shaw told me themselves that they throttle P2P connectivity.
