Re: [Extreme Plus] New Speeds Effective December 1st

Hard to tell at this time. Based on the fact that the message says that your current upload is 1mbps despite having the higher upstream product code on your account, I would guess that 4mbps would be the non-higher upstream tier speed, and those with higher upstream already would retain the 7mbps.

Once the network upgrades are complete in the entire footprint, the plan is to eliminate the "higher upstream" designation and make them the standard tier. Considering there are still many areas to upgrade, I doubt this will be done by December.

EDIT: just got a notification telling me that Express will be going to 25mbps down and 2 up. My notification also said my current upload speed is 0.5mbps but I'm on the 2mbps tier already. If Rogers can implement some better caps, this will really put pressure on Bell to expand FTTH deployments as 25 down is the max speed you can get with FTTN and that drops to 16 if they subscribe to Fibe TV.
