For Rogers Hi Speed Internet (delivered over cable) and Portable Internet from Rogers customers, the maximum upload speed for P2P file sharing traffic is 80 kbps at all times. There are no limits on download speed for any application or protocol.
I'm using torrents on Rogers, and my download speeds are fine (on par with Steam download rates) despite upload being atrocious (although I don't know if I'm on lively enough torrents to tax my upload). My P2P upload is about on par with what Rogers says their throttle is at, ~between 5 to 8 kB/s.

I don't play WOW but unless your download rate is proportional to your upload I can't see this being that much of a problem for an individual user on Rogers.
