Basically it says Netflix ranked ISPs for their ability to stream Netflix
and Rogers came last (even behind Teksavvy).

Further down there's a bit from a senior Rogers VP talking about when the
test was done and how Rogers has "invested" in upgrading their
infrastructure specifically to enhance Netflix streaming.

But if you Google the article it looks like the real reason Rogers failed
was throttling, so all they had to do ("investment") was figure out how not
to throttle Netflix?
