Re: Shaw uses some sneaky kind of new throttling.

said by bedetruth :

If you want to investigate further for any possible illegal activity by Shaw, please read articles on when Comcast was hacking peoples data streams to insert 'p2p kill' commands.

Shaw isn't doing this, and doesn't throttle downloads, per their published AUP. Also noteworthy is that none of the ShaperProbe type tools have ever found shaping activity, on the downstream side, by Shaw either. Not in my couple years on these forums.

I have noticed the speeds are drastically decreased between the hours of 3:30pm to midnight on weekdays in Vancouver. This has been going on since sometime last week. The speeds have been so drastically it makes visiting websites or uploading documents mutually impossible during peak hours.
