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.

This is one place we agree entirely and it's tiresome. I've finally hit the point where I'm really looking at getting out. It's just a question of where to go. I don't see this country changing for the better anytime soon. Let them revel in their mediocrity.
The liberals never pushed for liberalization of industry and competition. They pushed for whatever could milk the country the most and fill their coffers the best while screwing everyone at the bottom. If you need a finer example of this all you need to do is look at the legacy trudeau left us. NAFTA is probably the greatest fuckup of canadian politics at the time, short of adscam and the fleecing of taxpayers. While the premise of NAFTA is good, it's no free trade agreement. It's a fair trade agreement. A true free trade agreement would have been great.

I'm looking at Japan. Massive loss in the older population, with a serious gap in younger workers required to fill the gap. Nearly 40% of their population will be retiring in the next 10 years. And if I'm going to be getting screwed, I know exactly how I'm going to get screwed and in what way. Plus I don't mind the lifestyle, or the cultural mentality.
