[Ars] Oops: major Canadian ISP admits throttling World of Warcraft - Page 4

post #31 of 64
I've had nothing but problems with Rogers. Their speeds are all over the board, I get anywhere from 86mbit to 8mbit depending on the time of day and the 175GB usage is criminal considering I pay $120 a month for my net.

too bad there's a joke of a 75GB cap on the 25mbps service.
They do have the best upload speeds in the country though.

wish the CRTC would force bell to let resellers have a chance to resell their ADSL2+ packages. Roger's cable is just trashy, full of congestion issues and is only as fast as advertised in 3 in the morning. Not to mention the terrible throttling in file hosting sites.

Recently, I noticed massive amounts of lag in WoW in 25-man raids and in main cities where there are alot of people, as in it would take 20+ seconds to cast 1 spell. I got my ISP to turn interleaving on and as soon as it got turned on it was fixed completely, 0 lag now.

I might have a similar problem with BO for the 360. MW2 is usually fine but BO... blah

I wonder if I can encrypt the connection somehow.

(My newsgroups with ssl works just fine)

Once again I can't believe what a good deal we get here over in the UK. I get 12mbps actual (off a 20mbps dsl package) with unlimited usage and no throttling. All for the low low price of £18 a month

I'm sure youtube and other video streaming is throttled with my ISP. Simply looking at the upload / download speeds on rainmetre.

I get full speed with torrents etc but youtube and similar sites never get above 25% of the usage. Even running multiple tabs, still @ 25%.

Who's that with? I was impressed with Virgin when I lived there.

Why they would throttle this, I do no know.
patches... they use a torrent client to patch, the traffic matches other torrenting clients... = throttle

I don't do torrents or MMO though.
