Rogers does traffic shape (and has for at least a couple of years),
although it would appear that they don't do it as agresively as Bell.

As far as I understand it, Bell's traffic snooping box is too dumb to
analyze multilink ppp traffic.  It only works with normal ppp traffic,
which is what pppoe has normally been.  Hence since they can't analyze
the traffic, they can't shape it either.
