[kwlug-disc] OT: Another voip.ms troubleshooting question

I think what Jason is pointing out is that Rogers doesn't run their VOIP
service over the same line they run all the other cable traffic. Can they
shape it? Sure they can and they likely do some QoS over it and may well
share it with other Rogers VOIP customers. I believe what Jason is getting
at is that they appear not to allow other non-VOIP traffic on that cable
line.

We had Rogers home phone service for several years and didn't have some of
the problems we've had going with a different VOIP solution (calling cards,
etc.). Not being a fan of Rogers we switched almost all our services away.
The phone service was the one service I occasionally miss from them.
