CGO Files Final Response in Rogers Game Traffic Mismanagement Fight

The Canadian Gamers Organization (CGO), a group dedicated to fighting for Internet openness in Canada, announced today that it has submitted its final response to the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission's (CRTC) request for information. The CGO has waged war against ISP Rogers for "discriminating against online applications—namely World of Warcraft and Call of Duty Black Ops—using illegitimate Internet traffic management practices."

"Canadians should not be made to wade through a sea of technical data to enforce the CRTC’s rules,” says CGO co-founder Jason Koblovsky in a statement. "There has been strong evidence from the start of this fight—which dates all the way back to January—that Rogers is not respecting Internet openness rules. When faced with this evidence, the CRTC should be taking proactive measures to ensure their rules are respected, rather than pushing the onus onto Canadians."

Non-profit advocacy group recently threw its support behind the CGO’s efforts on this issue as well.

"Canadians have been crystal clear: we want access to all the Internet has to offer," said Executive Director, Steve Anderson. "It’s past time for the CRTC to enforce Internet openness rules, and prevent discriminatory traffic management by conducting regular Internet openness compliance audits.”
