Canadian ISP Rogers Accused of Throttling Video Game Connections

Corey Rollins Writes: "We've all experienced periods of unexpected lag while playing online games. Often times we blame our hardware, or a congested server. But a recent complaint in Ontario against the Canadian Internet Service Provider (ISP) Rogers Communications suggests otherwise.

I've rarely ever noticed any lag issues, the only game I've seen it on is when my daughter plays COD. Maybe it's only applied in certain areas or on the lower tier plans. I'm on extreme plus and on speedtest the ping is typically 10-12 ms with download speeds of 35-40mbps, that's more than the advertised speed. I should try it from the PS3 and see if it's any different, though that is unlikely to be throttled either as it's not a gaming traffic.
