Canada strengthens net neutrality with zero-rating crackdown

Canada’s telecom regulator [CRTC – Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission] has ruled against a carrier offering ‘free’ music streaming as part of a zero-rating scheme. Quebecor’s ‘Unlimited Music’ allows premium Vidéotron subscribers to use select streaming apps, such as Spotify, Apple Music and TIDAL, without the data counting towards their monthly allowance. Many believe this type of scheme violates the principles of net neutrality, which argue all data should be treated equally. – Nick Summers, Engadget http://engt.co/2pL1bp9
