Note that Rogers may keep existing Extreme and Extreme Plus users on the older package unless they upgrade to a DOCSIS 3 modem. New customers who order Extreme and Extreme Plus in areas not rolled out to DOCSIS 3 may have problems with the consistency of the order. They MAY be forced to buy/rent a DOCSIS 3 gateway when a DOCSIS 2 modem is available. They may refuse to enable Extreme Plus in those areas at either speed.

They also offer Rogers Portable Internet which is a wireless based service. Note this is NOT what could be described as a Mobile Internet service.
Note that across Canada, Rogers offered DSL services to customers originally with Sprint Canada. It does not appear to be available to residential customers at this time and appears to have been terminated.
