What regions does service?

We have already noted that there seems to be little or no regional bias towards the choice of which proxy a Rogers' subscriber might be sent through.

Another way to look at this is to consider the web-proxy, (, which is found in the following logs proxying for these IPs:
In short, wc09.wtnk~ seems to have been available province wide.

(Localities for the IPs above are based on this database, which seems to have obsolete data in some (but not all) of the ranges relevant to this matter.)
