The Network Is NOT The Issue

I happen to be good friends with a contractor who travels all over Southern Ontario doing upgrades for Rogers.

Rogers is spending all kinds of dollars on network upgrades and has been for years.

Anyone find it oddly coincidental that the only time Rogers justifies caps or throttling, it usually is revealed in areas where there is direct market competition to existing Rogers services?

This has NOTHING to do with congestion, only OTT/Netflix prevention. It's all about charging you for content and when their monopolistic business model for content is threatened, Rogers sites network congestion and uses regulation and lawyers to stop it.

Bell/Rogers/Telus want nothing to do with competition, they are simply protecting the long time old boys club from falling apart, with every tool they have.
