In well-managed networks, congestion isn't an issue.
Rogers isn't well-managed.
In times of crisis all we'll have is the Internet to conduct matters of national security and survival.
Rogers cannot be allowed to be the root cause of the demise of Canada's ability to conduct business and transmit data in a timely and effectual online world.
I'm in the business, and I think Roger's doesn't actually do too badly.
Managing a network with 1.9 million end users is challenging... What exactly do you feel they are doing that is "inept" and leading to the "demise of Canada's ability to conduct business"?
I so missed this post before. How about this:
Stating that they monitor their network, and begin upgrades before they're needed, so they're completed before congestion becomes a problem. Complete BS.
An entire POI was only being served by 3gbps - they denied upgrades to TPIA because they didn't have enough capacity for themselves, let alone TPIA due to lack of upgrades. Kitchener/Waterloo POI sometime back in 2011
Having a local node fail over & over - just doing patch jobs on the bloody thing. Refusing to do any significant work on it. I was stuck on that node until I moved. Massive congestion on this local node due to way too many houses, multiple apartment buildings, and multiple sets of row townhomes being on it - and this was before Rogers increased their speeds causing network-wide congestion.
While we're on that. Network-wide congestion from them increasing speeds to all (Retail & TPIA), then scrambling afterwards to do node splits.
Failure to abide by ITMP policy (for years on end), and getting caught red-handed multiple times.
Lack of network upgrades and relying on throttling to manage their network (ie against ITMP policy).
Leading of course to Rogers being forced to do more node splits to be able to remove throttling, to get the CRTC Enforcements Division off their ass.
Hell, and that's only the last 2 years. :\--
