Use Rogers? Your Torrents Might Be Useless

Since I’m not Canadian, I’m a little out of the loop on what Rogers has been up to. According to TorrentFreak, the ISP banned BitTorrent traffic due to excessive bandwidth consumption. Enter encryption and for the next year, everyone is safe. Now in an effort to curb encrypted Bit Torrent traffic, Rogers has started to throttle all encrypted transfers. That means your secure e-mail, login, and everything in between are all screwed and there’s nothing you can do about it except complaining directly to Rogers.

TorrentFreak also points out that Rogers’ slogan is still “for sharing large files and much more.” Now I’m chuckling heartedly on the inside right now and really hope you are as well. Call Rogers today and tell them you don’t want your encrypted traffic being shifted around and blocked!
