We should all move to Alberta

no cap. 250mbits. They have a package that's cheaper with a 1tb cap. Wake up Rogers!

Their Cable TV is also superior to Rogers. We used to have Shaw here until the deal where Rogers took over the East and Shaw took over the West. I never had a problem with Shaw while Rogers has been nothing but problems!

And they have modern Motorola STB's that aren't stuck in the 90's.

Well Rogers also use Motorola CPEs, just not in Ontario. Even with Shaw, their best equipment isn't the Moto boxes but the Arris/Moxi Gateway system.

Actually with Rogers, the current Cisco 8642/4642 combo isn't bad hardware-wise, it's just how Rogers handles the firmware update. I'm pretty sure that even with a good CPE system, Rogers would find a way to mess it up.

What does the moto equipment have that the Cisco doesn't?

Re: We should all move to Alberta

Who cares what equipment they use. The speed is interesting of course, but the caps on Shaw are 3x higher than rogers and they have super fast unlimited options. This should be used by everyone when talking to Rogers as an example of their artificial "cost" model. If shaw can make money offering this, so could Rogers. Shaw has the same effective monopoly in the west.

Someone has to roll out a 100+mbit alternative to cable to get some competition going.

any Rogers plan +$ 100 = unlimited. If you aren't worried about speed it can be considerably less than $190. We can keep hoping for 250mbps though. Doubt it will happen soon.

However in Ontario, there are are more independents offering unlimited cable through Rogers' infrastructure for far less. There's far less competition from independents in Shaw's footprint.

Or we can move to BC... Didn't Shaw have this for a while?

Yes Shaw had that tier for a while now. The problem is that Rogers isn't competing against Shaw, so it doesn't really matter how fast or reasonable Shaw's tiers are.

A more valid comparison is the regular price of your Ultimate plan. With Rogers, the regular price is $122.99 for 150 down, 10 up and a monthly usage allowance of 250 GB. The comparable plan with Shaw runs $115 for 250 down, 15 up and 1 TB monthly usage allowance.

I wish that Rogers offers multiple IPs. Right now, you are limited to 1 Dynamic IP address per service.

Shaw on the other hand, offers 2 Dynamic IPs (If i'm not mistaken)....

I know shaw has unlimited plans but what is the overage cost for a capped plan?
