I can't understand why anybody wanting a Motorola would buy a 4 channel model today.
The speed tiers offered will work fine with 4 or 8 channels.
Its up to Rogers to manage the channels.
In another post I listed a scenario where its actually worse to have 8 channels.
It goes like this: 30 customers are on 4 channels 30 customers on another 4.
This is 8 channels of bandwidth.
Now lets examine if all 60 are on 8 channels of bandwidth.
While the POTENTIAL for faster speed tiers is higher on 8 channels, you now are competing with 30 more customers for the SAME amount of bandwidth.
BUT if they are separated (4 channels each) then the same 30 users cant affect the other 30.
Its all about how ROGERS manages the AMOUNT OF CUSTOMERS on the channels.
