[Extreme] Specs for Extreme grandfathered plan

Hi Guys,
Would someone know the specs for the Rogers Extreme grandfathered plan? I know it's 95 GB/mo transfer, but what is the "advertized" download and upload speed?
I'd like to be well informed if I have to call tech support.

Thanks!

Isn't it still 10meg down 1meg up?

Well, I have measured about 17 Mbps down and 800 kbps up (using Rogers' Speed test).

check out this thread 5 posts down »[Extreme] 95gb limit instead of 100?

Thanks for the link! I just did a couple of tests:
speedtest.net = 10 mbps up / 0.99 mbps down
Rogers speed test = 15.8 mbps up / 1.02 mbps down

I understand that speedtest.net is the more accurate of the two? If so, it appears I'm getting just 10 mbps download, which is quite disappointing because I use a DOCSIS 3 modem! Fortunately I'm getting the higher monthly allowance of 95 GB.

I tried a few speed tests and I'm getting different results:
Rogers' speed test - about 16 Mpbs down
speedtest.net - about 25 Mbps down
testmy.net - about 14 Mbps down
(upload is about 1 Mbps with all three tests)
All the above is with a Cisco DPC3008 docsis 3 modem.

Which is the most accurate? What is the "advertised" download speed for the extreme grandfathered plan?
I spoke to two Rogers' CSRs and neither could tell me what download speed I'm supposed to get!

Any guidance would be appreciated!

I believe the grandfathered Extreme is 10/1.

You'll never get an accurate speedtest because of Speedboost. Try using the speedtest tool on this website as it downloads slightly larger files thus negating the effects of speedboost.

Tried the tool from this site and I'm getting 16 Mbps, which is consistent with Rogers' speed test. So, whatever plan I'm on, I'm consistently getting 16 Mbps down and 1 Mbps up.

Make sure you are using the Java based test not the flash one.
