With the increasing popularity of streamed video and other traffic, P2P file-sharing, as a proportion of total traffic, has been diminishing. This is not to say that it no longer has an impact on network congestion. Nevertheless, and in light of the extensive investments the Companies have made in additional network capacity, and given economic ITMPs in the marketplace, the Companies will withdraw the shaping of P2P traffic on the Companies' networks, with regards to both retail and wholesale traffic, effective 1 March 2012.

Dear Mr. Seidl,

In March 2008, Bell Aliant Regional Communications, Limited Partnership (with regardsto their operations in Ontario and Québec) and Bell Canada (collectively, the Companies)introduced a technical ITMP with regards to their wholesale traffic, mirroring an ITMP alreadyapplied to their retail traffic, which managed peer-to-peer (P2P) file-sharing traffic during peakperiods.

The Companies have consistently maintained that they would continue to monitor theneed for ITMPs and evaluate the best means of ensuring a good user experience for themajority of its users. In particular, the Companies have examined the need for their currenttechnical ITMP in light of the Commission's recent approval of capacity-based billing in TelecomRegulatory Policy CRTC 2011-703,

(TRP 2011-703) and the impending introduction of an economic ITMP withregards to wholesale traffic.
