If you believe that, you don't get around very much.

I was in Toronto last month, visiting family, and connected into their Rogers 3Mbps service with the same laptop I use on a daily basis here on the island. And I was getting download speeds nearly triple that of what I typically get here in Victoria with Shaw's 5Mbps service.

The fact of the matter is, in a city like Toronto it is easier for the ISPs to have a lot of peerages to major backbones going through New York, Michigan, and the Windsor to Montreal corridor, as well as various international linkages. Victoria shows a very stark difference - everything has to go through either the BC mainland (primarily Greater Vancouver), or through Washington State. We are very much a bandwidth edge case, and it shows.

A simple traceroute to the Vonage Softphone SIP server shows that traffic goes from here, through 5 different Shaw routers, through to a linkup to Level 3 communications, which connects into an OC192 link. OC192 runs at a maximum of 9.6Gbps, or the equivalent of less than 2000 Shaw high-speed customers at saturation.

There are not an infinite number of such links, although 15 minutes of traceroutes does show peerages with Level 3, Bell Nexia, and Allstream. This is still a finite amount of bandwidth, linking through only a few routers that everyone on the island has to go through to get to the outside world.

As such, I disagree with your assertion. Vonage does not control the bandwidth to/from the island, they do not control the limited peerage links, and they don't control the routers. If the service doesn't work to your linking, I personally don't blame you for switching to something that does, but the blame for the problem needs to be properly directed.

(And again, I'm on Shaw with Vonage and don't have any problems. However, I am admittedly a very light phone user, so perhaps I've just been lucky, and use it primarily during the off-peak bandwidth hours).
