Re: [TWC] TW Officially Announces Packet Shaping for All RR User

I appreciate you linking to posts, but they aren't conclusive either. Just a lot of supposition.

As far as the RR site links go, there is nothing in them that says they are packet shaping.

Then I suggest you follow my advice and contact RR through the help desk as I instructed above if you feel more comfortable getting an answer for yourself from them. That is what I did and got the response which started this thread. I have no problem with people getting their own confirmation. You can also get one by phone -if- you reach level three technical support. The lower level techs may not yet have this information in their system.

I don't need to jump through hoops to get proof for something you said.
The threads you linked to are of yourself and one other person who also did not post proof, oh and an anonymous user. Included in those threads are other users like me who say they are seeing nothing out of the ordinary.
Your post says they "officially announce packet shaping for all users", yet there is no official announcement anywhere to be seen.
For now I'll believe RR is packet shaping when I see it.

well, i have had no official confimation mail personally, but we JUST signed up for a 7mbit line here in austin. woke up today and things were running way slow. cycled modem, ready light kept going off all day. finally when it came back up, we are totally throttled down, not just on something like peer to peer or audio/video, but everything.

we normally got around 8mbit here since we live directly across the street from time warner.

as of now, we are getting 0.3 mbit, which is below the legal speed we are required to get (i called, i asked). the tech support on the phone said they were changing the network when i asked him about packet shaping, so there is more to this than smoke. thats for sure. he told me that rr reserved the right to change features, and that i was the first to call today. i highly doubt it. all i can say is 'welcome to court litigation rr.com'. 7mbit +, down to below 0.3mbit. i can upload faster than i can download now, about 40KB/sec is tops.

Sheik28,

What do you think RR is going to do announce this to the their customer base HELL NO!!! They are going to keep this as quite as possible and that is why my god damned pings have nearly tripled those F*cks...

If they would update there network instead of pulling this $#*t and just letting the little downloading troll's know to hey chill dude, all would be good!!

RR truly suc's they still owe me a call to explain why I had to setup there digital phone service and their technician could not!

I see a future where people in America can use no p2p have the slowest most useless connections. While the rest of the world has a free internet with true broadband. And the main reason for this is greed, people who are billionaires are able to bleed every last penny out of the consumers by giving the the worst possible services and charging them the absolute maximum for it. Imagine how crappy American cars (80's anyone?) would be by now if they didn't have Japanese and German competition. I'm surprised the US hasn't banned all imports just so they can rip off there citizens more.
