Rogers Ordered to Stop Throttling WoW and Other Games

The Canadian Radio-television Telecommunications Commission issued an order yesterday to Rogers Communications giving the internet provider until September 27 to formulate a plan to cease throttling online games such as World of Warcraft, reports the Calgary Herald. Noting that Rogers own traffic management policy states that "online games, such as World of Warcraft, should not be throttled or slowed down, and would only be affected if Rogers misclassifies the games and other peer-to-peer applications were running at the same time." For its part, Rogers states it has corrected the issue with World of Warcraft and is "not aware of any problems with any other online games." Thanks Ant via Slashdot.

Canada has to be one of the most pathetic countries in the world for not allowing competition, yet it always likes to tout itself as so very cutting edge and advanced.
That's because the liberal party instituted into law various forms of protectionism over the nearly 80 years they were in power to "protect" canadian industry ensuring that canadian businesses would have a defacto monopoly, and for any newcomer it would be next to impossible to startup. And yep it's illegal, yep it's in violation of various trade laws, but nothing has been done. It's even worse in quebec where you not only run into these but have to deal with the language laws on top of it.

Nice place to live. Very archaic place for competition. And it doesn't matter if it's rogers, bell, shaw, cogeco, telus, and so on. It's either east, or west and it's the same shit. Different pile.

What's going to need to happen is Canada is going to have to follow the designs of Japan and S.Korea when it comes to the last mile, and own it. Where every one, and every company owns a portion of it, and pays for it. That way no one can be screwed over by crap like this.
