Rogers no longer throttles traffic.

Previously ...

Rogers does throttle P2P transfers using the BitTorrent protocols through the use of Cisco pCube Service Engines. It does this by dropping occasional packets. This causes the TCP/IP stacks of the sender and receiver to significantly slow down transfers.

Not ALL customers are throttled. Throttling is employed mostly in heavily congested areas and covers most of Rogers territory. A few areas are not covered.

Individual customers can be throttled with this equipment.

The best way to get around throttling has been to set up using encryption. The service engines were updated to catch this, but uTorrent v1.8 seems to have managed to work its way past this at the moment.
