Is Rogers (Canada) Throttling VPN Connections?

After reading Michael Geist’s article about a senior VP at Rogers calling on the Canadian Government to shutdown VPNs it occurred to me that I have been experiencing chronically crappy network connectivity when working from home (from which I am always connected over the easyDNS corporate VPN) and thought maybe if this sentiment exists in the upper echelons of Rogers management, then maybe it has trickled down to a policy of traffic shaping along those lines. In other words, maybe my crapola connection over VPN is because Rogers is throttling VPN traffic.

I've since posted an update to this. I'm not sure anymore, after Rogers sent a tech out to my place to replace the cable in the backyard it looks a lot better now and doesn't seem throttled to me.

Well i have not any sort of experience in Rogers but ye i know about the best Canadian vpns which are still working good enough to unblock content in Canada or outside the Canada, such as pure and express vpns are best enough for all purpose.

Here is a reference:
