Re: [Extreme Plus] New Speeds Effective December 1st

they are still throttling in some areas (Ottawa) and even mention they are still throttling on their new packages in certain areas (notice the triple *).

North York, ON
Justin, do you have the Glasnost tests to back that up? Because Rogers' site says they've removed throttle for all areas in Ontario as of Dec 14, 2012..

Rogers Network Management Policy
Applicable to Rogers Hi-Speed Internet customers in Ontario, New Brunswick, and Newfoundland
Effective December 14, 2012 Rogers has completed our phase out of the management of peer-to-peer (P2P) traffic on our network.
1. Why does Rogers manage traffic on its network?
Rogers is committed to ensuring the best possible online experience for all our valued customers.
2. How Does Rogers manage its network?
Rogers uses a variety of network management techniques. These techniques have evolved as the Internet has changed. We continue to manage the network to limit spam, viruses and other security threats.

If you have Glasnost data showing that, you should be doing an ITMP complaint for non-compliance - Rogers's site is showing there's no throttle... I'd also love to see this, as Steve @ OpenMedia was asking me about this.
