Canada to Rogers Cable: we want fix for game throttling by next week

Canada's telecommunications regulator appears none too pleased with Rogers Communications explanation for the throttling of game streams over its cable ISP network. The Canadian Radio-television Telecommunications Commission wants the company to crank out out a plan for fixing the problem—and by Tuesday, September 27. Bottom line: Rogers must come up with a scheme to avoid the "misclassification" of interactive game traffic, so that its network management system won't shape and slow World of Warcraft, Starcraft 2, and other popular games.
