We've mentioned in the past how ISPs, like Shaw and Rogers in Canada use traffic shaping tools to block out P2P traffic, but the companies don't seem to want to admit it. An ISP may have a valid reason for using traffic shaping tools -- but they shouldn't be able to do that without letting users know that their connection has those limitations. The expectation when you sign up for an ISP connection is that you can actually use it. Letting subscribers know gives them the option of not working with that ISP and, instead, signing up with one that actually gives them real internet access... Aha! I think we've figured out why they keep it a secret.
