NYC WoW Issues

New York Time Warner Connectivity Issues on the WoW Forums reveal an ongoing issue for Time Warner/Road Runner subscribers in the New York City area (thanks Shacknews). At this point Blizzard is saying the issue is on Time Warner's end, with some theories indicating packet shaping software is at fault. Time Warner denies this, but they are looking into identifying the cause of game issues, which apparently impacts other games, with Counter-Strike offered as an example.

Then if it's about video then wtf does it have to do with WoW? It's not like WoW is streaming videos for 15 bucks a month.

Its really about any service that requires high-bandwidth low-latency connections (all modern multiplayer games, most streaming video services)

ISPs are pissed because providers of these services are pushing these types of connections over their networks and not paying for it.
