Sandvine calls net neutrality "laughable," defends filtering

From Ars Technica:

Sandvine creates deep packet inspection (DPI) gear that is used by ISPs like Comcast to inspect and sometimes throttle Internet traffic, and the company has been the target of a fair amount of online ire for its work. But CEO Dave Caputo says that it's all one big misunderstanding; what he really wants to do with his company is focus on "improving the quality of the experience of the Internet and trying to make the world a better place."

Caputo made the remarks in an interview with the CBC's Peter Nowak, and it's worth reading in full. Apart from one odd interlude where Caputo suggests that those who favor network neutrality laws also want to destroy copyright, it's an interesting conversation that largely circles around a single point: ISP overselling.
