Happy new year everyone! I just wanted to make a quick post about how dam cold its been for the last 2 weeks. We have been at -35c for quite some time With windchill. Now we just got more snow (almost a foot). I told everyone that this was going to be a bad winter, everyone said no. With all the arctic air blowing in, I’m glad today is only -1c.

Rogers Canada, 250 U internet vs 100 GB / Day Uploads
I thought I’d just share my most recent Rogers internet experience. I’ve been running IP cameras for quite some time and figured why not make it remote. This is quite an easy task using ZoneMinder and a Server somewhere in the world or desktop/laptop at home. Only thing else you will require is a IP camera. But bandwidth is an issue. I measured 9.6 Mbits/s transfer between 2 cameras at very high quality. I have 250 Mbits/s DOWN and 25 Mbits/s UP. Should work fine right? Well it did for a few days, I actually contacted Rogers support to find out whether on an unlimited plan I would get Throttled or not and if I’d receive a charge if i went over say 1 TB of usage for a month. According to them, they phased out throttling and unlimited is truly unlimited.
So do they throttle?
As you can see in the graph, it would seem that they do indeed throttle. For at least 2 days. I had one day go from 87,000 Mbits to 18,000 Mbits and back up to about 70,000 Mbits. The frame rate went from 30 fps no problem to 1.5-3 fps. Now this could also happen because I’m what they call “a End of the line customer” Meaning I’m the furthest from the Rogers box on my line. Despite that sounding terrible, I actually pull in about 350 Mbits / second down and the stock 25 Mbits / s up. So that should not be an issue at all, if at most for a few hours it should have dropped and came back up. I also have been getting calls saying my modem might be hacked / could be.
In conclusion, I believe I did get throttled at least for a couple of days. Even tho the support reps at Rogers did say they ended mass throttling back in the early days of ’08. There is still a lot of reports say they still do throttle services such as Netflix.
