Take out torrents, sure, but what's wrong with streaming? What about
games? Heck, lots of games use BitTorrent to distribute their big
patches. Why should "reasonable internet use" be nothing but text with
some pictures? This is exactly the mindset that Bell wants you to have.
(Sorry if I'm sounding tin-foil-hat-esque.)

I'm pretty sure that the future of the internet, not to mention innovative
new internet technologies, will be bandwidth heavy, and to the exclusion
of old-boys-club media like radio, TV, Hollywood, etc, so why would you
want to let them hamper your using the internet to its fullest?
