    Rogers is a parasitic monopoly.

    It has been using Canada’s “dark ages” anti-competition rules as a proxy to bleed Canadian consumers while offering sub-standard services, for years.

    (For example…an Ipod phone user on Rogers system would have to pay $2500.00/month for the data plan…no, I’m not kidding)

    It is arrogant and foolish to persume upon anyones web space in such a fashion.

    Unfortunately, they do it because they know that there will be no repurcussions for their actions.

    Hopefully Google sent them a “cease and desist” order.
