    <blockquote>[TWC] TW Officially Announces Packet Shaping for All RR Users

    From Time Warner's Help Desk

    TIME WARNER ANNOUNCES INTRODUCTION OF PACKET SHAPING TECHNOLOGY NATIONWIDE

    June 6, 2007 -- Time Warner today implemented a network management tool to improve the operation of the network for all subscribers. As a result, a small minority of users may experience slower speeds during peak hours when using certain applications that consume lots of bandwidth. You can address this situation by reducing your use of bandwidth-intensive applications during peak hours. "Peak hours" are generally in the evenings.

    "Packet shaping" technology has been implemented for newsgroup applications, regardless of the provider, and all peer-to-peer networks and certain other high bandwidth applications not necessarily limited to audio, video, and voice over IP telephony. Road Runner reserves the right to implement network management tools for other applications in the future.

    Customers are reminded of the terms of our Acceptable Use Policy at ?help.rr.com/aup:

    * The Road Runner service may not be used to engage in any conduct that
    interferes with Road Runner's ability to provide service to others,

    the security, the computer, the software or the data of any person or
    entity, including Road Runner, to circumvent the user authentication

    distribute tools designed to compromise security, or to interfere with
    another's use of the Road Runner service through the posting or
    transmitting of a virus or other harmful item or to deliberately
    overload or flood that entity's system.

    Customers are further advised that efforts designed to circumvent our network management
    tools may be in violation of our Acceptable Use Policy and may result in account suspension
    without warning.

    I am ditching Fuck Warner, I hate them. Why should I have to pay? Maybe I want to watch Shows from other countries, maybe I paid for a CD and I lost it and I want to re download the songs?

    Fuck Road Runner, fucking hope your fucking Road Runner gets ran over by a car and then eaten by hillbillies as road kill, because that is what your god damn service is.

    Also, so since they can do that to any program, they will probably do it to my fucking Firefox and Opera, and Safari since I don't use their bloated program to surf their blocked off web.

    Hopefully they'll lose lots of customers because of this, though I guess there will be casual users that won't mind one bit. Would casual web users actually want to use RR because of this?

    Usual consumers will probably think that it is helping them get to their mail faster, thats the whole problem with this, only productive computer users will boycott Road Runner.

    I'm wanting to get Verizon FiOS or something else, you have any recommendations?

    Well, I have Earthlink/Verizon DSL. It's pretty reliable, but not the fastest connection in the world. Then again, I'm on a wireless connection, which could affect speed a bit.

    FiOS is probably amazing. I'm not sure how expensive it would be just to have it installed though... I imagine there might be a lot of rewiring needed...?

    Well I have been noticing slower iTunes and uTorrent downloads and I've had to download faster downloaders for Opera and Firefox.

    I'm now looking for FiOS.

    Definitely go with some type of Verizon service. They will respect your privacy.

    Yeah, I am (I already would have) going to hack my iPhone on the 29th or 30th so that I can use T-Mobile.

    Also I am still trying to get FiOS, and I am going to call them this Friday.

    Thanks, even though I have though out my iPhone plan on hacking it.

    I'll need two to have a back up.
