Welcome to the world wide web, Rogers, where news easily becomes viral.

 

I hope that it's incidents like this that will bring about NetNeutrality in Canada. I really hope it causes you to remove your DPI.

 

You can't mess with a nerd's World of Warcraft. We get grumpy. 🙂

Re: Rogers throttling/deprioritizing World of Warcraft

With all the Facebook revolutions this year I'd suggest that those of you on FB put a link to this thread in your status.  

 

Also lets just be clear here as well.  It's not only WoW that's being throttled it's also Starcraft and for myself COD Modern Warfare 2.  So it's clealy not the manufacturers fault(no matter how much Rogers wishes/tells us it is) it's Rogers and their handling of the traffic.

Re: Rogers throttling/deprioritizing World of Warcraft

I wish Rogers would have included the date that they contacted Blizzard about the problem with their response to the CRTC - less than a week before their response was due!

Guess they needed to make it look like they were actually doing something about it.

I'm doing that in my response.  Just about ready.

 

Just need to have the other complainant sign off on it. 🙂

It's great that we're getting noticed.  Hopefully the groundswell will force Rogers into immediate action to rectify this.

Re: Rogers throttling/deprioritizing World of Warcraft

i called level 1 tech last night for a specific reason, and while on the phone i asked them if they were aware of this new subject.  The guys response was "i read something on it" but quickly avoided the subject, i them proceeded to ask him if he was instructed not to talk about it and right away he repeated what he previously had asked me to do.  Nice to see its reached level 1 and how they are avoiding the subject 🙂
