I've been Rogers customer for years, the plans have become more expensive as the actual performance continues to drop.
I find it hard to believe that a company is allowed to advertise and promote super download speeds, then limit those speeds to a fraction of its potential because you share files. The plan description on their site states that extreme, plus, and ultimate plans are for those who wish " to share large files"!
Rogers claims to throttle upload not downloads, yet my experience is that they limit download speeds substantially. This along with caps, is under the premise of saving bandwidth - meanwhile a computer remains connected for hours, even days as it pings thousands of connections for many hours during the slow download. How does taking 10 times longer to pass along increased data save bandwidth?
Rogers also limits capacity, they charge extra $ for going above your cap?
I don't believe the CRTC is correct in allowing Rogers both the ability to cap and to throttle. I agree with others that this has become a worthy election issue - its time to stop this monopoly manipulation of our internet system in Canada by Rogers and Bell.
Policies are the main problem with Rogers. This is a huge company that has lost its connection with its customer, The best way to pay them back is reduce your plan, (throttle limit speeds are the same on all plans) and leave Rogers when it suits you. Write your MP.
