Beware of Rogers & The Other Big Internet Providers
They are doing the sneaky dance and "we don't know what you are talking about" game, feigning ignorance. The only downfall? WE AREN'T STUPID!
It would be nice to know where Rogers, Telus and the other big guns stand on Net Neutrality, Package Shaping, Internet 2 and freedom to access ALL websites on the internet without making things slow to respond to servers not "liked" by our controlling government and corporate suppression. Where are your press releases & votes of confidence boys? Why are you so quiet?
Here are a few examples:
"Geist offers the example of profs who post their lectures online via an application called BitTorrent, free software designed to send large amounts of multi-media data from point A to point B. He says lately these video clips and audio files "slow to a crawl" when students try to download them because of "package-shaping" practices by companies like Rogers."
"Another wrinkle with deregulation is what happens when the carriers start to peep at what it is they're carrying, and then discriminate based on what they see. The landmark example -- the one that even advocates in the U.S. cite -- actually took place here in Canada when Telus blocked a website run by striking Telus employees called "Voices for Change.""
http://thetyee.ca/Mediacheck/2007/01/17/NetNeutrality/I am concerned that the freedom of information & speech is dwindling away with these 403 errors & slow connections. What's really going on Rogers? Another slow and sneaky way to deter us from Truth websites (all the ones I have errors with happen to be awareness sites: http://www.airapparent.ca/ & http://www.thank-water.net/ etc.)
WE NEED TO START ASKING THESE COMPANIES MORE QUESTIONS & PUT THE PRESSURE ON! THANK YOU!
